She was also called a person she was not, Alyce. This person could read.
In 1920, of 8 million women working for wages, one-quarter were married and living with their husbands. The working woman immigrant and native, working-class and became a professional symbol of female emancipation. Women faced special limitations on their economic freedom, including wage discrimination and exclusion from many jobs. Yet almost in spite of themselves, union leader Abraham Bisno remarked, young immigrant working women developed a sense of independence: “They acquired the right to a personality,” some- thing alien to the highly patriarchal family structures of the old country. “We enjoy our independence and freedom” was the assertive statement of the Bachelor Girls Social Club, a group of female mail-order clerks in New York.

With limited options for women professions, Dix decides to open an elementary school inside her grandmother’s house in 1821. The school was named "the Hope" and it served mainly the poor children of Boston whose parents could not afford an education. Unfortunately, the school came to a closing in 1826 due to Dorothea being repeatedly and sporadically ill. At this time, Dorothea wrote her first book, Conversations on Common Things.

Since her mother’s death, Rosaleen, a worker on the farm, raised her because her father is more concerned with business. Tolstoy was probably primarily raised by Karl, as his parents were wealthy and could afford the luxury of a tutor. Both of these situations are subtly used to create pity for the children. In addition to characters, the excerpts vary in diction and syntax. The Secret Life of Bees employs casual, informal, and conversational diction, making it seem like the child is narrating the story.
America in the 19th century was, as for most of its history, divided sharply between rural and urban environments. Women on farms in Indiana and working in factories in the cities were expected to behave in fairly different manners. But while there lives were different, the struggle for equality became important for both. For so many women in history, being equal was something of value and of importance to them, but every time “equality” was brought up, it was just ignored. In the first document, “Women's Roles in the Late 1900s” talks about what women were expected to do and how their lives were “tied to house and children, endlessly unacknowledged work, little opportunity for outside contact or variety of experience, and little relief from everyday triviality.” It discusses how women were encouraged to do these things and how they had to do them because they were the only ones capable of actually doing these things.
The value of enslaved people increased because of their key role in producing cotton and sugar. Tubman met many abolitionists who shared her desire to bring Southern slaves to the North. Enslaved people, for the most part, resisted slavery by working slowly or by pretending to be ill. They also just had few legal rights. The laws in the Southern states became more and more severe each day for the enslaved people.

Her parents were Sarah and Stephen Barton, she had two sisters Dorothea and Sally, and two brothers David and Stephen.Before Clara went to school she was tutored by her brothers and sisters in subjects such as spelling, arithmetic, and geography.
As industry exponentially grew after the Civil War, the need for labor and materials to power newly-created manufacturing giants caused new social classes to form: the rich corporation owners and the poor laborers. Unfathomably rich Robber Barons, or plutocratic American Capitalists, dominated the economy and industry and profited from the slave-like work of millions of poor laborers during this time period. Moreover, the poor working class and the rich further divided by distribution of wealth. Therefore, exploitation of capitalism widened the gap between the rich and poor classes of America, and both newly-formed classes developed reasons for the change. During the period of industrialization, between 1865 and the early 1900’s, corporate
