A guide to Progressivism for women voters, 1922

A progressive primer


After women gained the vote in 1920, many suffrage activists and organizations turned their attention toward educating the new woman voter. The Wisconsin Women's Progressive Association, under the leadership of Ada James, sought to bring women into the Progressive movement by teaching the fundamentals of Progressivism and its relation to issues concerning women. This booklet, prepared by Irma Hochstein, explains the fundamentals of American government and civic participation, with specific information on the ideals of Progressivism.
