Bagley devoted much of her life to social welfare. While living in Chicago, she was an early worker at Hull House, helped organize the first juvenile court and the first day nursery for children of working mothers and widowed fathers in Chicago, and helped educate immigrants for citizenship. In Massachusetts, she served as president of the Equal Suffrage Association of the 10th Norfolk District, director of the Boston Equal Suffrage Association, congressional chairman for Massachusetts for the National American Woman Suffrage Association, and vice president of the Massachusetts League of Woman Voters.
