before the war women were seen to be inferior to men as women were seen to be the weaker sex. men and women had separate conjugal roles where the men would be the breadwinner and work to get money and the women would stay in the house doing chores and looking after the children. with so many men away at war there were few people to work in shops and factories so the government decided to get the women involved make them feel like they are doing their part to help the war source A3 shows this as there is a photograph of women working in an ammunition factory it was take during June 1916 knowing that women were needed to work in factories at this time I can establish that this source is very reliable but it lacks information such as the name of the photographer and location also there is no purpose for it which makes us question why was it created as it lacks important information it leads us to believe that the government may have staged this and planned to use it to encourage more women to help in factories just like the one shown in the photograph but never did. as the war began the government needed to get more women to help in factories just like source A4 shows a tactic of the governments to get more women was proper ganda posters which leads us to believe that this source is not very reliable but also useful as it gives us an insight on what the government were doing . source A4 shows a poster of a working women showing that the government want to recruit women for a land army the government has played on religion to encourage women to join the land army as it says 'GOD SPEED THE PLOUGH AND THE WOMAN WHO DRIVES IT' and religion had a big influence on the society.
In the end, he would give her the money because he wanted Sunday’s dinner. Then she had to rush out of their home and try to buy food quickly. Eveline worked to keep the house together, as she had promised her mother and to keep the kids in school. In the text it states, “It was hard work — a hard life — but now that she was about to leave it she did not find it a wholly undesirable life.” (Paragraph 5, line 17) My second reason that Eveline could've left was because her father was an alcoholic and because he treated both Eveline and her mother with disrespect and cruelty. Because Eveline was a girl, her father started
Also some of men just don’t let women to work just because someone needs to cook and clean house while husband earns money. In some of the African countries women always have to look after babies, look after the shelter, find the water and do all sorts of jobs like that. Also in Indian countries women always had less rights than men. And even if in Britain or other countries this stereotype can be challenged in countries such as Africa or India it hasn’t changed for a very long time. Women also is portrayed as week and delicate so women hasn’t got an access to jobs like building, driving and so on, just because they don’t seem as strong as men.
shows where the husband goes out to work and is the main bread winner and the wife stayed home doing chores because they didn’t have much education and in reality they did not need one as they were being taken care however, the change of labor and childbearing in the late 1970’s undermined the institutionalized basis of marriage (402). The traditional sense of marriage was fading as more and more women joined the workforce and this made men help out more in the household with chores. Marriage was no longer the nearly universal setting for childbearing that it was a half a century ago (402) because the ratio of childbearing out of wedlock are much higher today than they were back then. The Great Depression and World War II changed the meaning of marriage in the 20th century (403). It was now known as companionate marriage, where basically they were more romantically involved.
This shows how women were treated in the late 1800s, probably before, and the early 1900s. The role of Australian women at the time of world war 1 was to all the jobs the men that went to war left behind like farming, running factories ect. They already had to help make clothes and socks for soldiers and cook and clean. The women in Australia had a lot of stress put in them because the men left, yes there was one or two less mouths to feed but that just added more jobs to the list of things to do. Women had to deal with everyday life alone, they had to take care of children and get a decent
For instance, during the “Week of Peace” Okonkwo came home to find that his second wife had not returned from her friend’s house in time to cook dinner. “When she returned he beat her very heavily. In his anger he had forgotten that it was the Week of Peace” (Achebe29). Beating your wife during the Week of Peace was a huge sin to the clan. Okonkwo let his anger get the best of him and violated the code of the Ibo people.
In the nineteen hundreds, women couldn’t live and depend on themselves to make ends meet; therefore it was compulsory and essential for women to be married as they depended on the man incomes. Women in those days were housewives; they stayed at home and looked after the children, while the men went out to work. Men were considered as the “bread winners” of the organisation. Dobash and Dabashes study on domestic violence also supports the fact that women depended on men. In their studies, the women were continually harassed and abused, however they still stuck with their husbands.
In The Beginning World War I started in 1914 and America entered in 1917 causing a labor shortage among men and women who had and did take over. The war tore families apart, forcing women to take on new roles in the work force. Approximately a million women filled the vacancies left by the men who were now overseas. Many of whom were young girls and wives that had once worked in department stores and restaurants, but left their jobs to raise families, now worked on the farms and in shipyards and factories. (Joyce Bryant 02.03.09) By late 1918, more and more women had taken over jobs once held by men.
However, as evident in both novels, this traditional middle-class family structure does not conform to the conditions that the characters are faced with during the industrialization period. In “Mary Barton”, for instance, Mary lives only with her father after her mother and brother died. Mary’s brother died of hunger due to their very poor living conditions caused by the economic depression (Corey, 1). Mary’s father, John, then becomes involve in the workers’ union to expose the poverty stricken people, and leaves Mary "more of her own way than is common in any rank with girls of her age" (Gaskell, 23). She is without a mother to guide her in life, and to arrange marriage of any sort.
Such as when David Lurie is trapped in the country side with his daughter, after she is raped and feels a lived as a father to look after her, 'I can't leave Lucy alone on the farm. She's not safe.' Also, in the case of Factotum, Henry Chinaski finds himself trapped in his daily routine of getting drunk and losing his jobs. Hence the ironic name; 'Factotum.' They also show that the freedom that is given and the freedom that is taken by the societies in which they live, gives an effect on the liberation and the imprisonment of each situation.
