Frist, there were numerous tasks and roles for women in the 17th century. Women were to obey and serve their husbands which included tending to their children, maintaining the household, and other chores around the house. Governor John Winthrop stated, “A ‘true wife’ would find contentment only in subjection to her husband’s authority.” (George Brown Tindall, 110) The modal woman at this time was one who would silently do as she was told by her husband.
Women did not have any rights, it is supposed to be a man’s world, but without a woman what would the world be like. Specifically, women are the foundation of life; we nurture the things to come. More importantly, taking a glimpse at the narration of women’s right and history that comes along with it. It shows that women have made
There are similarities between the Puritan society and today’s society’s treatment and punishment of women; however, there are vast differences between the two societies as well, including rights women have gained since the Puritan times. Puritan society and today’s society share similarities in the discrimination of women. In Puritan society, women were expected to be the primary caretakers for the children and to support the household by maintaining its cleanliness and cooking meals
In the 19th century, the cult of domesticity states that women’s only job is to work as a mother. They are to be in the house cleaning, cooking, and taking care of the kids. It also states they should not be allowed education. As said in Document D, “...the wages of factory girls are higher than those of females engaged in most of other occupations.” This statement contradicts the cult of domesticity in where female’s only job is to be a mother not work in factories.
Diseases had a really big impact on the population of the New World but along with that it affected the lives of every individual since there wasn’t enough knowledge of medicine and disease many people died without even knowing that they would die. The natives had never really experienced such a tragedy so they had no natural immunity to any of the diseases. Diseases spread rapidly because of this. Since a huge amount of the population was wiped out, the Europeans had less natives to use for labor and as a result of that there was a big shortage of labor. The second biggest negative impact was that of the slave trade beginning.
This act gave women the only choice of staying home and taking care of the kids and the household. This post WWII effect caused a harsh barrier between genders and what their roles in society “should” be. Men played the more dominant roles in society. In the family aspect, they were known as the suppliers of the family, expecting to come home from work with a home
The women began to notice that if they were trying to teach their family pure morals inside of the home and then continued to send their family into the dark and wretched world, they were only digressing. This new idea started what we now know as, the Public Sphere. Women felt that it was their jobs to fix problems for people such as slaves, widows, drunks and many other immoral groups (Ginzberg 10). The Public Sphere of women was simply the idea that the rest of our world needed to be reformed into a moral place to ensure that our families would be positively influenced.
Plus, with them being undocumented, it was like they were invisible. Both poems talk about immigration where people from other countries would come the United States to change their lives because their country could not offer them a better future. Both poems had a representation of a light house. In Alabanza, it was the light house in Fajardo, which lights up the most wretched parts of the sea. That light helped immigrants find the right path of success, and it was the same for the Statue of Liberty because of the famous burning torch, giving immigrants to look at it.
This is because they had the means to support themselves with one income; therefore, women could stay at home. Domesticity was not common among poor and slave families because both men and women had to work to support their families. The concept of domesticity, specifically the difference between the treacheries outside world and the comfort of home, greatly changed socio-cultural perceptions of children. After domesticity developed, childhood became viewed as a distinct stage of life, in which children’s innocence and morality needed to be nurtured and sheltered from the evils of the world. Domesticity provided the opportunity for wives to offer more nurturing and attention to their children.
During the 1840’s, the roles of men and women to their communities became defined by the social and economic changes around the world. The role of women averted from assisting their husband in their jobs to attending primarily to their domestic duties at home. The crucial fact of what Victorians thought of as the “separate spheres” define the natural characteristics of men and women in society. Women were considered to be physically weaker than men however they were morally superior to them due to connections to the domestic sphere in society. Needless to say it has always been the duty of women to balance the duties of obliging to commands made by men and being a mother.
The artwork is to demonstrate the gender role of the artist. Back in the 1900s, patriarchal is the societal value. However, there are many activities women can’t do or involve because of the gender difference and gender stereotype, the old society thought female are weak, they should stay at home weaving, cooking and taking care their children. Consequently, some of the women developed some sort of desire to become a male base of their childhood experiences and society structure or even family pressure. Sometimes, people think that being a part of the LBGTQ is a shameful thing

One of the most world-changing moments in the world at the end of the 1920's was the Great Depression. Although some might have benefited from it, the Great Depression was also the event that caused the economy to become depressed due to many changes in the world. The Great Depression caused extreme poverty, severe number of unemployed people and homelessness. In picture two, it shows how there's a homeless man sitting there with a little baby.
There was tension, blood, and tears with the Thirteen Colonies and Great Britain. This was due to the American Revolution that started in 1765 and ended in 1783. So how revolutionary was the American revolutionary war? Well, first what does revolutionary mean? Revolutionary means that things have changed dramatically.
When the topic of the American revolution during the years 1765-1783 is discussed, the mind races through all the horrifying battles men fought, the declarations men made, the brave male soldiers they drafted, and the founding fathers who wrote the constitution. But what is rarely mentioned is all the behind the scenes work women were responsible for while men were off fighting in the military. The war disrupted their ordinary lives, and the everyday roles men were employed in needed to be filled. Women throughout the United States assumed untraditional roles to so that life would continue, now being involved in politics, factories, businesses, commanding the household, and helping during battle.
