Rife with reproducible primary sources, these five teaching units highlight varying points of view about the changing status of women during the Progressive Era, focusing particularly on differences of race and class.
Topics include the women’s club movement, the labor movement, college education, Margaret Sanger and birth control, and the debate over women’s suffrage. Among the many excerpted documents are writings from Grover Cleveland (“Woman’s Clubs Not Only Harmful, But a Menace”), Jane Addams, Booker T. Washington, and Emma Goldman; a letter from Susan B. Anthony to Elizabeth Cady Stanton; lyrics of union songs; testimony before Congress; labor laws; and Justice Blackmun’s decision on Roe v. Wade.
