Throughout this colonization time, certain women were challenging their status quo and paving the way for more women to have more rights in society. The women who were new to America were traveling by boat from England to come to the Jamestown colony, in hopes for a new life away from a dictatorship. Most of the new colonists lived on a farm. Back in England, farm work was men’s territory, but in this new country, men expected the women to contribute since there is so much land and not enough workers. The plantation owners (normally rich white men) relied on their wife, daughters and a person of color (normally a Native American/African American person) to do their work for them to work and manage while the owners were gone.
A day for a woman in ancient Egypt would be like any normal day, like waking up to prepare breakfast for her husband; women would wear linen dress that would keep them comfortable from the rough heat, and world wear a reed necklace with an amulet of a goddess Tawaret, who is believed to protect a woman and her baby during child birth difficulties (many gods are goddesses, like ISIS too who are equal to male gods). Even unhealthy women can afford servants to help her keep the house and take care of the kids; they would go to the market to bring groceries like lentils, chickpeas, vegetables, honey since sugar was not discovered yet, and meat. But meat was mainly for special occasions because meat was expensive to buy and eat every single

However, academic skills were not enough for the integration into the new community. She studied how to trade with a fruit peddler and be no longer afraid of policemen. The way she dressed changed as well, as she adopted American fashion in clothes. The author depicts a moment when her family changed their “hateful homemade European costumes, which pointed us out as "greenhorns" to the children on the street” for real American machine-made garments, with genuine pleasure and pride. Moreover, in order to integrate themselves into the American society she and her siblings abandoned even their names.
The women I would like to recognize is Rosa Parks. She is valuable women in history for many reasons such as her courage, standing up for her rights, and using her words instead of her fist as Martin Luther King said. On February 4, 1913 in Tuskegee, Alabama Rosa Parks was born to a teacher and a carpenter (her parents).

The challenges Laura brought up were hiring nonfamily members and to be able to trust them, also taking the time away from the business because a lot of small business owners take things home with them. Laura was wonderful and was willing to take the time out of her schedule to let me interview her. The week I interviewed her she was designing and screen printing all the shirts for Granite City’s kid’s baseball parade which she was designing the shirts as we were doing the interview. Even though she was busy, she answered my interview questions and in-depth as she felt was needed, she had a few things she didn’t really want to discuss such as selling the business which I didn’t push her to
Therefor they are immured at the tenderest years in mills and workshops, to undergo severe and continuous toil.” However, growing opposition to child labor in the North caused many factories to move to the South. The state alone was in a position to fix this situation and give the children a way to help themselves, but the states however, were again too late to prevent the suffering these children were being put through. By the time the states varied enough in whether or not child labor standards should be put in to place and in their degree of enforcement, American children had been working in large numbers. They were in mines, glass factories, textiles, agriculture, canneries, home industries, and as newsboys, messengers, bootblacks, and
It is now considered normal for a woman to have a job alongside her husband. Women have the option of whether they want to stay at home with their children and take care of the household or if they want to work. Even in some instances now, stay-at-home mothers are being criticized and judged by working mothers and independent women because they believe that stay-at-home mothers are dependent on their husband for economic matters.

In fact, women, currently, make up 58% of the work force, while, a century ago (1914), the percentage of women working was only at 18%.
