The Progressive Era was a time period from around 1900-1914 in America when many reforms took place, including political reforms, changes to business, and women's suffrage.The women's rights movement during this era was led by many women at this time who wanted to change women's role in society. They wanted to have the same jobs as men, and be treated equally as well.
