Thank you Aunt Bessie for giving me the opportunity to learn about the progressive era and letting me give your money to the three reforms I chose. I was very intrigued when I started researching about these four progressive reforms. Some things I found out were atrocious and the others just plain out disgusting. Although women 's suffrage is a huge issue, deforestation, child labor, and food safety struck me the most deserving. The progressive era was a time from about 1900 to 1920.

Women used many different ways to earn the right to vote in the Women's Suffrage Movement. The first method was parading in the streets. There was a parade with floats and lots of women marching holding signs demanding the right to vote. This method was used to get publicity for their cause. It was reported about in the newspaper. Many people watched the parade. The president read about it in the newspaper. Another method used was picketing in front of the White House. Women picketed all day long for months. The women did this so the President would see them every time he came in and out of the White House gates. It was also in the newspaper. A lot of people stopped by to read the signs.
The progressive era was a time in american history when there was change in the american way of life. Before the progressive era people would die because of mal- sanitation, children would be working in factories and where getting hurt. Meat packing was done inadequately.

If I was born in the generation where I had where to choose where to place $1,000,000 to certain cause, I would give it to the three things I have stated.
The U.S. was a time of Industrialization which meant it led to the rise of big businesses at the expense of the workers. Factory laborers faced long hours as, low wages, and unsanitary conditions. Capitalist were so busy trying to create profits for their own selfish needs that they did not care for the well-being of their workers. The large corporations only cared about protecting themselves by allying with political parties. Many people felt that all power rested with the politicians and businessmen, but the Progressives attempted to undo these problems caused by industrialization. The Progressive movement sought to end the influence of large corporations, provide more rights and benefits to workers, and end the control possessed by party leaders. The Progressive Era was a period in American history in which improving working conditions, exposing corruption, improving the way of life, expanding democracy, and making reforms were the objectives at hand.

It described the difference between Gilded Age presidents, that employed laissez-faire, and the progressive presidents. During the Gilded Age, the government left supporting the economy to companies. The government usually stayed out of economic issues, except when labor unions threatened companies, where the government supported the companies over the workers.

Women’s Suffrage occurred during the 1840s to the 1920s. Women did not have the right to vote in America until the end of World War I.

Imagine what the lives of women would be like if our world never evolved. Women would be staying home, not being able to seek what a professional job is, not being able to own property and much more. This would be truly discouraging, wouldn’t it? If this were the case for our society today, there would be a lot of uproar.
