Women worked longer hours and got paid significantly less than men did. The long hours effected working mothers who couldn 't be home to take care of their children and had to work instead. Women also faced exploitation in the workplace because it was easier for their employers to get away with paying them less. Ella Mae Wiggins was a famous poet that conveyed the struggles and hardships of female workers of the time though her powerful pieces. She was a part of the fight for better working conditions.
Besant’s article goes into detail on how much the women are paid, and she explains how much money is deducted if a rule was broken. “Throughout most of this period women were paid less than their male counterpart working alongside them, which created great financial difficulties for working women” according to the “Striking Women” article (1). This shows how the women during this time were treated poorly and unfair. Many of the women who were working started to revolt and they wanted to have equal rights in the workforce just like men did. Also, during this time, many of the working women husbands viewed them working in an unpleasant way.
There is often a casual link that is made by society that a working mother equals a failed child (Guendouzi, 2006). Working mothers often feel that they are bad mothers for going to work and bad workers if they put their children first (Knapton, 2008). Thus, employed mothers frequently worry about their children, and often feel anxious when child care arrangements are not the greatest or when their children are home alone afterschool. Researchers have found that women spend more time agonising about their jobs at home and more time worrying about their families at work, than men do (Knapton, 2008). This can also be referred to as mental labour which is defined as constantly worrying which can have a negative impact on these women’s performance at work.
Analyzing their personalities individually (Peacemakers, Hostesses and The "Monster"), have all demonstrated different tasks to the society of Beowulf and the plot. Readers have discovered that the stereotypical views of women are present. However, the women show a great deal of independence, strength and violence. Their stereotypical characteristics start to disappear once you analyze and realize their importance to men. The male dominance is present to an extent, but without females being accounted for, tasks and responsibilities would not be completed; men depend on the women in the society of Beowulf.
Mad Max: Fury Road has been getting a lot of praises based on its gender representation throughout the film. George Miller shows women being objectified and used as objects. They have limited roles that are given to perform within the Citadel. He is showing us this in his film because it shows that these are the things society thinks women are only used for, but in all actuality women are equal to men and they save the day in the film. Miller 's film is promoting a shift in perspective and how women should be portrayed in society.
According to Ware: “Women who sought relief or paid employment risked public scorn or worse for supposedly taking jobs and money away from more deserving men.” Ware goes on to show why this idea was flawed. To begin with, many women were the sole source of financial support for themselves or their families. Furthermore, the jobs that women mainly got were in what we now consider traditionally women work, such as nurses, or sectaries. This influx of women in the workplace managed to both upset and reinforce the status quo. While women flooded the workforce and in many cases became the main breadwinner of the family, the jobs that they had were in traditionally female areas, and thereby helped reinforce what was viewed as feminine jobs and what was viewed as masculine jobs.
Women stayed home and took care of the children, cooked and cleaned while men were away working and “getting things done”. Women are highly underappreciated when the subject of history appears. Many do not like admitting that women have as much to do with the development of America as men do but it is apparent in several instances of history that America would not be what it is today without women. Several women throughout history have helped develop American society as a whole and they should be recognized. For example Sojourner Truth had a huge impact on early America serving as a double threat, fighting for Women
The expectation to assure her husband’s happiness and to prioritize everyone else before herself is still an issue that many woman face today. Women with Post-Partum Depression are often degraded as mothers, women who work are often judged, and women who choose not to have children at all are criticized. While woman’s rights have indeed come a long way from the expectation of a 19th-century woman, there is still inequality. A Doll House is still relevant today because many women face the same issues he presented, and until the genders are truly equal, it will stay
The working status of women has fluctuated greatly in America’s history, with jobs being denied to and kept from them. At this point, women have mostly secured their place in the job market, but there are other obstacles that remain; for example, the wage gap still persists, and while women can work alongside men, they are still seen as being inferior to them. Due to these negative factors, working women are not only expected to happily work alongside men - they are expected to work harder than them to prove their place. This higher expectation has lead to negative effects in women’s history, socioeconomic relations, and their health. Historical Lens The lack of availability of jobs for women throughout American history lead to a stigma for
Women should not be paid less and forced to live like servants. Women should be paid equally to men so they don 't have endure extra labors and struggles in life. Being a woman alone in the world is scary, having kids and not being paid what you deserve on top of that is grueling. A study done by AAUW, a women 's research foundation, found that it takes a mother six extra months to make what a father makes in one year. This means a mother has to work hundreds of additional days to get to a man 's pay, as well as manage to take care of themselves and their family.
