On the other hand, working in the factories helped women to establish their new image, they proved to all the men that they could do what men did and they could be independent. As a result, the number of working women increased by 25 percent (The Roaring Twenties, page 2).

Lucie is kind, considerate, and everything that Dickens wants a woman to be. When she sees someone else like she does in this quote she tries to be nice and happy and do what she can for them.

In Lyddie's story, she has to go endure many hardships such as losing her farm, having poor working conditions, and having to walk and walk to become a factory girl. The place she stayed at was an small inn. The in was very overcrowded with 2 women sharing a bed.
