It begins with a brief discussion of the changing role of women during this period. It describes the ways industrial and societal changes altered women’s roles in the domestic context as well as expanded their place in the public sphere. The chapter then proceeds to a discussion of women’s clubs, women’s political activity and women’s lobbying generally. It concludes with a brief analysis of women as progenitors of the 20th century’s “new” lobbying.
