A social history drawn from primary sources, this book chronicles, in comprehensive detail, the story of American women from 1900 to 1920, the period known as the Progressive Era. Here, all the moods, movements and milestones of the era are tied together and refracted through the experience of American women. Fittingly, this exciting period of radical change culminated in the passage of the 19th Amendment, giving American women the right to vote. In words and pictures, "American Women in the Progressive Era" offers a sense of what it was like for women at the start of the 20th century. It describes the domestic lives of ordinary women, as well as their working lives, both in and out of the home.
