Progressivism, 1900-1917

Progressivism's goal was to reform the existing system-by government intervention if necessary. Progressivism contained many paradoxes. A diverse coalition of individuals and interests, the progressive movement began at the grass roots but left as its legacy a stronger presidency and unprecedented federal involvement in the economy and social welfare. A movement that promoted social justice, progressivism often promoted social control. And while progressives called for greater democracy, they fostered elitism with their worship of experts and efficiency, and they often failed to champion equality for women and minorities. Whatever its inconsistencies and limitations, progressivism took action to deal with the problems posed by urban industrialism. Progressivism saw grassroots activists address social problems on the local and state levels and search for national solutions. This week's readings focus on works by radical women in the Progressive Era and the causes they supported. For Friday, read and analyze the following documents (6 sources total) found in doc sharing: Mary Church Terrell, "The Progress of Colored Women" (1904) Mary Harris Jones ("Mother Jones"), "Girl Slaves of Milwaukee Breweries" (1910) Emma Goldman, "The White Slave Traffic" (1910) Margaret Sanger, "Woman and Birth Control" (1923) powerpoint images of Prohibition (use at least one of the three images) and Suffrage (use at least one of the three images) In 2-4 pages, analyze the documents and put them in conversation with one another to discuss the following: A new focus in cultural history analyzes the issue of corporeality, which examines the physical body as well as dimensions to it such as the expressive and experience aspects of the body and its use. Something to consider in dealing with differences of race and class is the body as a privileged site. Additionally, a study of the historicized body should include the ways the physical body is expressed in fashion and accessories. Use the following documents to examine gender from a body history perspective to write about how these documents reveal the body as a means of social and political expression, particularly within the paradoxical themes of freedom and power. For this assignment due in class on February 15 (bring a hard copy with you), please avoid the use of first-person, and format the assignment using Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, and double-spaced. Footnotes are not necessary, but when referring to the primary source documents please use parenthetical citations.
