This devalued the jobs of women, as they stayed home and spun wool and stuff. Now there was machines to do that job. Additionally, these times widened gap between the wealthy and the poor. Unskilled workers, also known as “drifters” went town to town looking for jobs that worked for them.
Yafa writes about Boston businessmen who made Lowell, Massachusetts the first planned industrial community. The mills (factories) were built, and instead of using men to run the textile (fabrics) mills, the Boston Associates used “healthy, young, farm girls to work the mills.” Often the girls were very young and were separated from their families, lived in boarding houses, and saved some of their very low wages to send back home to their parents and to save up for their dowries (to give to future husbands).

When we got in there it said small pumpkins a dollar and big ones for 4. We paid 7 dollars and on the way out it said haunted corn maze free.

We Americans now depend on most electronics to go about our lives. We use electronics to communicate, find information, socialize, and now to do homework. Back in the day before the United States were born people like Ben Franklin and others were creating these wonderful inventions to help easy the life of colonial people. The Middle Colonies needed a plow to fasten the process of farming crops. The virus smallpox started an epidemic and a vaccine would help lower the risk of people getting the disease.
The husks of my body are made for sleeping mats, children’s dolls, and ceremonial masks; my stalks and cobs were used for fuel. Our young corn was used as a fresh vegetable and our elderly mature kernels of corn were ground into flour. The flour is used for different items, including my favorite of corn tortillas.

The fact also arises that women not only suffer from lack of recognition for the work they do in households but also for their work in their jobs. Women work as much as men, if not more. When both paid and unpaid work such as household chores and caring for children are taken into consideration, women work longer hours than men—an average of 30 minutes a day longer in developed countries and 50 minutes in developing countries. This is known as second shift, where women not only work at their jobs but also come back home and complete their household chores. However their contribution remains minimum due to unequal wage pay and lack of consideration given to household chores.
2. Economic and legal standing Both the Roman and Egyptian societies in the ancient world were predominately ruled by the male gender, men were the rulers and lawmakers, in ancient Egypt, however, women were their own mistress and were accorded the same legal rights as men from the same social class. When it came to property and locus standi, women in Egypt enjoyed similar freedom in performing legal acts as women do in today’s modern society. All landed property was passed down through the female line, from mother to daughter. Egyptian women, irrespective of their marital status, could inherit, buy, and sell property.
In hunting and gathering communities, women had a very high status because they gathered most of the food. When agriculture was beginning to become more common, men worked in the fields and women were provided with a less important role. Laws tended to be favored more towards men and women had the responsibility of raising children, doing housework, and cooking. Women also could not have any political standing in both the Paleolithic and Neolithic Revolutions. Overall, despite the fact that women held a higher role in the Paleolithic Revolution, society tended to favor men to control and provide to the
When it came to women in ancient Egypt and ancient Rome, there is no denying that such a contrast between their statuses existed. Their positions and privileges in their respective societies differed, though Roman women were not confined to their homes and social status, they were throughout their lives subject to the authority of their fathers and husbands, unlike Egyptian women who did not require a male guardian to act on her behalf. Per conclusion, after comparing the different aspects of these women’s lives, it is evident, though they both did not share an equal status with the males in their society, ancient Egyptian women did enjoy more freedom and equal treatment, as opposed to ancient Roman
An interesting thing to note is that Hurston uses the same dialect and presentation of speech for all of the characters in Eatonville. By doing so, she erases the idea of a class system in Eatonville. Despite this, the people of Eatonville devise their own divisions and impose a class system. For example, women with long hair are more sought after than women with short hair and men who don 't own property are less suited to be a husband compared to men who do own property. This class system is largely based on the person 's qualities and actions rather than the amount of money he or she has.
Ancient civilizations began in areas that had arable land and other features such as rivers. Civilizations succeeded in these environments because they could settle down and not live a nomadic lifestyle. Because the land was arable, agriculture prospered and people relied on the geography to grant them the elements needed for survival. In China and Egypt, geography greatly influenced and affected the lives of the people living there because of the prosperous rivers and large natural barriers.
Cuneiform was a system of writing created in Mesopotamia around 3,000 BCE. Scribes used a reed to make “wedge shaped” indentations on a clay tablet. Cuneiform started as way of keeping track of business transactions but was later used to create alphabets for the languages spoken in Ancient Mesopotamia. The Code of Hammurabi (discussed later) was written in cuneiform.
Before paper trails and written work was developed and comprehended there was an era called prehistory. This era, that lacked written communication, excelled in the growth and development of agriculture. With an expansion of agriculture, civilizations were formed alongside rivers. Among the new civilizations were Mesopotamia, in the middle of the Tigris and Euphrates River, and Egypt, beside the Nile River. These civilizations varied because one was formed between two rivers and the other was constructed along the sides of a river.
