Daily Life of Women in the Progressive Era

This book illustrates the social change that took place in the lives of women during the Progressive Era. It ties social history and the experiences of women to one of the most important periods in American History: the Progressive Era. It documents firsthand the daily lives of women in the Progressive Era via reproduced primary sources. It tells the story of key events such as the triumph of the suffrage movement from the lives of everyday American women. And it brings to life the “real women” who lived during a period that is well known for its political events but less understood in terms of daily life.
