Though few people are not happy with these changes due to their old thoughts, but, the number of working mothers is increasing drastically compared to previous years (Rampell). Women’s rise as breadwinner provides more financial strength and stability to the family. On the other hand, few people still believe that it is better for men to focus on breadwinning and women on homemaking. “Women are the primary breadwinners in nearly 40% of families with children under the age of 18, according to the recently released report from the Pew Research Center” (Claire). The women’s trend being a primary breadwinner is increasing because the larger number of women are earning higher degrees and entering the workforce (Claire).
Industrialisation had lead to many families moving from agriculture into the big cities, this meant that more jobs were available, many of these being non-heavy manual labour jobs, many of the jobs in the agricultural sector were hard manual labour, and in this society were often seen as too strenuous for women, but after the industrial revolution a wider variety and larger quantity of jobs were now available. These involved many jobs in the Tertiary sector, jobs that could be performed just as easily by men as women. More jobs were also available for women in factories as well. So women went to work and families had more disposable income, which lead to increased spending on consumer goods. In the early years of the Post War Golden age “86 percent of households were wired for electricity” (Sandbrook, 2005, p.104).
She did have a salary which may not be as good or as high than the men but was of course a great help to the family and a privilege to her.By 1850, employers did have better economic improvements which benefits a women coming from a middle class. If I work more, I earn more so there was a possibility to improve the income and life during that time. During this era, there was wars and that was actually the best time for a women to work because she could actually get a work easily and still be useful as her husband went to war. By working in a factory during the industrial revolution, I get money to buy my food which means that I could actually eat more food and food of a higher nutritional quality. Another reason why factory work is better according to me is the fact that if I worked in my own cottage, the income would be for the whole family ( the whole family earn a sum) but by working in a factory, we get paid individualy in the family which brings more money and of course if we have a cottage some merchants could actually mess of stock of materials.
This essay will discuss how women's roles have changed within the family. It will analyse these changes and draw conclusion as to whether this has adversely affected the family in Great Britain today. The discussion will compare how women were traditionally placed within the family institution over one hundred years ago and how liberation and legislation have played their part in the changing role of women within modern day families. Women were once, social and economic dependants of men. A professional career was almost impossible, and despite Britain’s ruler being female for most of the nineteenth century until 1901 when Queen Elizabeth died, women were second class citizens.
(Buzzle) For these hard working men, women, and children, it was the beginning of a great change. Through the industrial revolution there was less “wasted time”. Over the next hundred plus years, families could multitask and save time and money as well as add years to their lives while making their lives easier. With the invention of the washing machine, refrigerator, sewing machine and wood stove alone women could now take care of the children, decorate the home, and sew for her family at the same time her meal was cooking, the clothes were being washed
Gough Whitlam Womens Rights Policy The Womens Rights Policy was established by Gough Whitlam in1975, being that women get equal rights. Before the policy was undertaken, women had minimal rights. They were not allowed to receive equal pay which meant that many women were suffering from unemployment, leading to women not working because there was no beneifit. Not only did women have no rights, they were being sexually harrassed or abused by superior males and discriminated in education. Before the policy was accepted, women were unable to receive loans if they were single, were not allowed to go to university, and even make decisions about their own bodies, e.g.
From the 1950’s to the 1970’s there were many changes taking place. Those changes including culture, politics, and economy. White men were able to get back to work and provide enough money so women didn’t need to go back to work. A lot of women still wanted to work, but social expectations kept them from doing so. This is where the famous picture of the typical happy housewife came from, although it wasn’t exactly the case.

Conservative people still say that women do not need to go earning as men are there for it. However, in an economy of ours, what good can it do if we cut half of the population away from working and earning some money? As a matter of fact, considering the poverty level, financial conditions cannot be changed unless both men and women of every family earn money, and for that, non-traditional jobs like working for police and army can be the best types of job where women can get the assurance of having governmental support and security of getting paid properly. Again, many people say that women may become too arrogant or rough to care
This put women at a disadvantage because they would not be able to pick up and move as easily as men. Wal-Mart would also waive minimum required qualifications to retain employees, a way of bypassing the promotion process. Wal-Mart pride itself on strong organizational culture that is based on respect for the individual, service to the customer, and strive for excellence. The company published letters praising individual employees for outstanding service. Wal-Mart managers public stated that women associates are paid less than men because they had to provide for their families.
