Best Answer

Progressive reformers sought to remedy the problems created by industrialization and urbanization. They championed democracy as more than an ideal political system and sought to reform the political system by sponsoring political checks and balances such as initiative, referendum, and recall. In addition, they supported environmentalism, direct election of senatorial candidates, women's suffrage, social programs, labor union support, and child labor laws.
