Abstract

The reform organizations of the progressive era led to better working conditions and equality for women. While much attention has been paid to the National Consumers’ League (NCL), the unique strategies and crucibles of the state branches have been largely ignored. With this in mind, this research will focus primarily on the archives concerning the activities of the Consumers’ League of New Jersey, hereafter referred to as the CLNJ, during the twentieth century. This paper will show the legislative campaigns, prominent leaders, and strategies of the CLNJ. How did the CLNJ use the ideology of the NCL and still function as a separate and distinct entity? What was the impact of the CLNJ on legislation in New Jersey?
