"Women Working For Pure Food"

Title

"Women Working For Pure Food"

Description

The author asserts that without pure food, the home is in danger. Women simply cannot raise their families properly if they are feeding them contaminated food. Thus, she tries to convince the reader that a national pure food bill must be enacted in order to maintain the sanctity of the home. This article provides insight to American womanhood and her responsibility to protect her family from any kind of harm, including tainted consumer products. Women were instrumental in the passage of Progressive legislation, like the Pure Food and Drug Act, for they generated the necessity of moral well being and purity within the public sphere and pushed legislators to reform social maladies.
