President Woodrow Wilson was the last of the Progressive Presidents and as such caused great economic, political and social change. He served between 1913 and 1921 during which he imposed economic change through reforms, both national and international political change and a change in the role of women, giving them the right to vote. The effects of Wilsons presidency created abundant change within American society that had long lasting impacts. Political change was imminent in Wilsons second term as he was given emergency presidential power to, in some cases, bypass Congress, to speed up the law-making process. For example, he imposed the Selective Services Act in 1917 which authorised conscription in the US so that the military could be built up quickly and would not have to rely wholly on volunteers; according to Khan Academy this was well received by the American public as they were incredibly patriotic and believed it was their responsibility to support their nation, as such few men dodged.

Bryan thought that the Philippines needed America to aid in their road to civilization because they could not govern themselves (
Wilson 's “Moral” diplomacy, was to help the nation whose ideas and ideologies fell align with that of the nation, but damage those who didn’t. Taft 's “Dollar” diplomacy, was diplomacy through use of its economic power by guaranteeing loans made to foreign countries. Roosevelt 's “Big Stick” diplomacy, was referred to as “speak softly, and carry a big stick.” He himself described his diplomacy as "the exercise of intelligent forethought and of decisive action sufficiently far in advance of any likely crisis.” One of President Roosevelt 's most noticeable accomplishments, was the building of the panama canal.
During Teddy Roosevelt’s first presidency, he attempted to tie with other governments, making this a political impact on the U.S. Therefore, when he noticed a problem or issue in another country, he traveled over there to stop it before it got too out of hand.

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.
