[1] The National Council of Jewish Women was founded in 1893 with a primarily religious and educational mission, but, like many Progressive Era women’s organizations, soon turned to a variety of reform activities.

[1] Between the 1880s and 1920s, hundreds of settlement houses were established in American cities in response to an influx of European immigrants as well as the urban poverty brought about by industrialization and exploitative labor practices.

[1] The legislation passed because of the newly developed electoral cohesion between the native-born craft workers and predominantly immigrant and African American industrial workers in the northern working class, who began to vote together for Democrats in the late 1920s, helping to overcome the divisions that had existed since at least the 1880s (e.g., Mink 1986; Voss 1993).

[1] Two of the most important outcomes of the Progressive Era were the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Amendments, the first of which outlawed the manufacturing, sale, or transport of alcohol, and the second of which enfranchised women with the right to vote. [1] The focus of the Progressive Era might sound familiar to you: it was about the rights of all individuals, including women, minorities, consumers, and other groups that people felt did not receive all the rights and protections they deserved. [1] From these earlier efforts came new leaders who, in their turn, focused their efforts on the key goal of the Progressive Era as it pertained to women: the right to vote. [1]
