The best resource
for Texas history is the Handbook of Texas Online:
If you enter:
women and the "progressive era" you will have all sorts of terrific, accurate and thoroughly cross-referenced articles.
The first to come up should be one on the Progressive Era in general then numerous others on people and different aspects
follows including the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs.
If you have any trouble with it, call or email me. Your local librarian should also
be able to help with searching in it. There is probably a paper edition of the Handbook of Texas in your library. But it is
a six-volume edition and doesn't have the search and cross-referencing available like the online version. There is a wealth
of information in the different parts of this Texas State Historical Association website.
