This chapter explains how a diverse cast of characters and organizations successfully created a politics of need in San Francisco, California in which policy making for specific groups became legitimate and even necessary. It discusses the efforts of reformers to mobilize voters to vote on the issues of women suffrage in 1896 and the reform of the municipal charter in 1898. The chapter analyzes these two events as emblematic of the central features at work in the emergence of a social-group conception of politics that we call progressivism.

Keywords:   politics of need, San Francisco, California, policy making, women suffrage, municipal charter, progressivism
