The Food That you Eat Exposed
Most of these problems that muckrakers exposed were formed during the gilded age. Bosses and machines paid big businesses to help keep them in power and used processes like padding bills and submitting incorrect receipts. The living conditions of the poor people and immigrants were awful. Most of them lived in tenements which small rooms housing several families. The city life at the time was poor, there was little sanitation and overpopulation due to factories which led to an increase in disease and pollution. Muckrakers like Jacob Riis would write books about how people lived during this time in order to get the conditions fixed and shown to government.
Alice Paul Letter Found for the Future Americans
Dear future citizens of America,
I have something important to say. I want to say that i hope that the future women of America have more rights than the women of 1910. What us women had to do to have the same right as men were tragic. One of the things I did was go on a hunger strike when a group of women and I were we were held as political prisoner and when I was on that hunger strike the had to force feed me. I went on that hunger strike to get an amendment put into place so us women can vote. The reason I was a “political prisoner” was because I was standing up for what was the right thing but, you have to be careful when standing up for what is right because you could get hurt.
The other things that you can do to get your point across is talk about it like a human or protest. If protesting is need be safe going about it. Before I was a prisoner I was protesting and people got made at us and came over and yelled and hit us. One other time there was a parade that I was in and people stormed the parade and hits and yelled at us again. Stay safe ladies I believe in you.
Love Alice Paul.
