Since voting was an issue of the state, women gained the right to vote across various places including Wyoming (1869), Utah (1870), Colorado (1893), and Idaho (1896) (Kennedy, Cohen, Bailey, pg 644). Nevertheless, the 1920 passage and ratification of the nineteenth amendment was a ground-breaking political victory, one in which President Woodrow Wilson gave all American women the right to

Progressive reformers exerted significant influence on politicians and charted impressive legislation that improved urban living. Building codes were passed that required minimum living space, access to fresh air, bathroom facilities, steady water supply, adequate stairwells and other modifications that improved housing. In the wake of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire in 1911, state and local governments responded by implementing fire codes to improve building safety. Clearly between 1880 and 1920, urban areas became cleaner and healthier as a result of a consistent and coherent codification of regulations and laws that were enacted by city planners and
The progressive movement that took place from 1890-1920 aimed to correct injustices in American life as well as restore economic opportunities. Through the hard work and persistence of all people involved, this movement was fairly successful in achieving its main goals of protecting social welfare, promoting moral improvement, and creating economic reform. Many people in this time fought to protect social welfare. More specifically, the intense and harsh working conditions for industrial workers.

In the period between 1900 and 1920, the federal government and reformers were very successful in bringing social, economic, and political reform to the federal government. While not every aspect of it was successful, the rights of women, fighting against child labor and limiting the control of trusts and monopolies were three distinct successes of that time. Even before the progressive era, women challenged their place and articulated new visions of social, political and economic equality.

The Second World War confirmed these ideas to Keynesian economists when the country saw more government spending on a wider scale having a huge stimulus to the economy. The approach I’ll be taking in my research will be that the New Deal largely had positive outcomes for the valley.

These machine was being inserted into the factories, and with the help of machine, factory were able to double or even triple the speed of production instead of relying on manpower. As the result, the Industrial Revolution help the British a great amount of growth in their economy. Before the industrial revolution started from the year 1700-1760, the capital stock was 0.7, Labour Force around 0.3, Total factor inputs
The Progressive Era was a time period where people known as Muckrakers exposed the problems of everyday people like the poor living conditions while the progressives tried different ways to fix those problems. During this time, there were also six goals that they focused on protecting social welfare, promoting moral improvement, improving efficiency and labor, creating economic and government reforms.

Johnson City was a religious town, it was hard-shell and had old testament religion.(Caro 91) Growing up, he felt the sting of rural poverty, working his way through Southwest Texas State Teachers College, and learning compassion for the poverty and discrimination of others when he taught students of Mexican descent in Cotulla, Texas.
