During the first Five-Year Plan Stalin made the Soviet Union go through a drastic change to modernise and industrialise, attempting to transform society and the economy into a successful and progressive state. With the many challenge that were met, women in the USSR became a vital part in society in order to achieve the targets of the plan.

This paper will discuss the state's attitude towards women's position in the Five-Year Plan and will argue that the state had an ambiguous attitude towards women. It started of as indifferent but due to economic challenges in the early 1930s attitude's changed.
The modern economic growth began with the Industrial Revolution in the Northwestern countries and followed by the rest of the world with various degrees during the last two centuries of the world history. As it fosters the rise of per capita incomes and standards of living, so it fosters ideological, demographic, agrarian revolutions which paved the way for the women to became part of the new world economic system as principal actors. In that sense, the history of women could not be written properly without the history of the modern economic growth and vice versa.

While efforts toward women’s civil rights had been made in previous centuries, large scale movements known as feminism began to truly gain ground in the 19th century. The beginnings of feminism, commonly defined as work toward the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes, are often attributed to Mary Wollstonecraft in her book The Vindication of the Rights of Women, published in 1792. The ideas spread by Wollstonecraft inspired many more prominent figures and works to emerge throughout the 1800s. The feminist movement was especially prevalent in Great Britain, where women such as Josephine Butler and writings like A Room of One’s Own and The Subjection of Women worked and spread awareness. While women’s political rights in 19th century Great Britain were improving, the social attitudes worked in the opposite way to confine women even more to household and domestic roles.
The Great Depression was caused by an overproduction of agricultural goods which led to an increase on imports and falling prices in the Chinese market. It also included widespread fighting among warlords. A quote that represents how hard the Great Depression was for industrial business owners is, “but it was the time of widespread fighting among warlords, who all levied heavy taxes. This, combined with the effects of the Great Depression, made it an extremely difficult time to run a textile factory” (Chang 104). Also, prior to the establishment of the Renminbi becoming the national currency in 1935, there were many different forms of payment.
Her position regarding serfdom, however, questions whether or not she was truly an Enlightened empress due to her neglection of the liberty of serfs. In spite of that, Catherine ultimately enforced Enlightened reforms where it proved beneficial to Russia although she limited these changes if they would threaten her claim to the throne. Catherine succeeded in reforming the educational system of Russia using ideas aligned with the Enlightenment in order to achieve a more advanced and sophisticated structure of schooling. She was educated from a young age and was fond of French books and literature, and as a result, acknowledged the importance of education for women. In 1764, she founded the Smolny Institute for girls.
In Charlotte Perkins’ “The Yellow Wallpaper” we are shown the oppression of one's individuality, particularly women’s during the Victorian period, where men and women became more sharply defined than in any other time in history. In earlier centuries it was common for women to work in conjunction with husbands and brothers in family businesses, but this had changed with the assistance of momentous events such as the Second Great Awakening that swept the nation and gave a rise to more active and optimistic religious sensibility, and the Market Revolution which led to the commercialization of economic life and the decline of household production and work diminishing the economic role of women. This concluded with the complete isolation of women in society. “The Yellow Wallpaper” represents this

British imperialism had a negative impact on the people of India because of health problems in India and the English language. Lalvani says that the health and life expectancy both improved dramatically when ruling (Lalvani). However, the total deaths due to famine before British ruling was 18 million, but when the British ruled there was a total of 40 million deaths due to famine or 58.73% of the population (Doc 11). This shows that the British didn 't care if people were dying, they only cared about making money off of them. Lalvani also claims that the spread of English language allowed communication between people from different backgrounds (Lalvani).
