Wilson’s presidency made contributions to the Progressive Era, particularly with the creation of the Federal Trade Commission, the Clayton Anti-Trust Act, support for organized labor, and attempts to improve child labor laws. He tried with limited success to apply his progressive ideals internationally in the aftermath of World War I, as reflected in his Fourteen Points proposal. This record is, however, limited by today’s standard of progressive values. His Attorney General abused civil rights in the “Red Scare” raids, he was a segregationist, and he resisted giving women the right to vote until very late in his administration.
