Question 1: Reform Efforts of the Progressive Era
The progressive era was a reformist era that reached its height at the begging of the 20th
century. The era was led by political leaders, authors and other types of people who used their
careers and perspectives to push for a fairer America (Schultz, 2013). The reform era led to
changes in both the domestic areas and the foreign relations area. One of the people who is
notably remembered for spearheading the time is President Theodore Roosevelt. The leader who
was the youngest president the country had ever had led the country and delivered several
important reforms that led to changes in the social and business lives of the people. The president
also led to reforms that targeted the Central American region. Among the important reforms that
happened at the time was the breaking of trusts by the formulation of the anti-trust laws that
allowed there to be a fair business environment in the country. The president also led reforms in
the areas of the railway roads and food as well as medical purities.
Another person that was important in the progressive era is Susan B. Anthony. Ms.
Anthony is remembered for her writings that targeted to bring about women suffrage in the
country. The woman founded the New York Women’s State Temperance Society that is credited
for fighting for women’s suffrage that was later allowed by the law in 1920 (Soderlund, 2015).
Upton Sinclair is another important person. He was an author and is remembered for exposing
the bad practices in the meat industry in his book titled The Jungle. The book by the author led to
the passing of the Meat Inspection Act that was passed to ensure the safety of the meat that
people consumed in the country.

Question 2: Cultural Changes of the Progressive Era
The progressive era led to various changes in the culture of Americans. The changes
affected the way cities were run, the way business was done, the use of alcohol and the rights of
women. Before the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt, big companies owned most of the
businesses in the country (Schultz, 2013). Therefore, it was very hard for small companies to do
business in the country. However, Roosevelt led to the enactment of antitrust laws that broke the
trusts and made it possible for companies to do business in the country fairly.
Women in the United States of America were perceived as very less important people
before the progressive era. Women had no say in the leadership of the country. The culture had
always dictated that women remain in the homes to take care of families rather than care for their
families. The progressive era led to the empowering of groups of women such as the New York
Women’s State Temperance Society and other groups that were at the center stage of fighting for
the rights of women to vote. The culture that did not allow women to vote came to an end in
1919 when the constitution was amended to allow women to participate in voting for the leaders
of the country (Soderlund, 2015). Therefore the progressive era was very important for femin...
