17: The Progressive Era- 1890 to 1920 CE


Purpose Along with class lessons and activities, this assignment will help us address this essential
question: How did the progressive movement try to bring about social change?
ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY

The progressive movement responded to a growing public demand for govern-ment to become involved
in curbing abuse of workers, especially children. Reformers also wanted changes in business practices
that harmed the public
WOMEN AND POLITICAL POWER

Women entered the work force in increasing numbers. Though usually paid less than their male
counterparts, women's increasing visibility in the public arena at the beginning of World War I helped spur
the movement seeking woman suffrage. Ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment took place in 1920.
STATES' RIGHTS

Theodore Roosevelt changed the role of the president by using the White House as a bully pulpit to
influence public pol-icy and expanding the responsibilities of the office. His actions shaped what would
become the modern presidency.
