Paul 's mother Hester can be described as bitter at best. She was a pretty woman but that was as far as her beauty went. She did not really love her three children, but felt the need to keep up a sick facade of being a good rich mother. She lived a double life and valued keeping up her social position so much so that she felt the need to have servants despite not having the finances to do so.
Though some women were treated better than others, most of those women were from wealthy families or were relatives of emperors. Women who weren’t from noble families, which was majority of the population, were required to follow a set of strict, unfair rules and look a certain way. They hardly had any say in who they married, and they were forced to marry at a very young age. The Han women were neglected of their education, and in the situations where wealthy women could, their received a different education than men. They learned about how to be good mothers and wives instead of learning skills for jobs, which completely restricted them from outside job opportunities.
Because of the abstinence of her mother, Lily lacks the knowledge of how to be a lady in her society. In the 60s, women were expected to be married at a young age, usually giving up their life in order to stay at home and have babies. If they did had jobs, they were very low paying. Also, they were expected to do common house chores inside such as cooking and cleaning, look attractive and listen to their husbands because they were the caretakers. The men, however, were expected to work, provide for their family, and do outside jobs such as mowing the lawn or washing cars.
The implication is, Lyddie is not paid by the hour, but also from how much fabric she makes. Other factory girls are not even increasing their pay, in fact their pay is only lowering. In addition to the other girls not even going to budge working because of their low pay, Lyddie has a chance to get the money she needs to reunite with her family. Therefore, if Lyddie were to sign the petition, her pay will only decrease. Lyddie is already making a good amount of money, signing the petition will only slow her down, and even worse, Lyddie could be dismissed leaving her with debt.
These workers aren’t being paid nearly enough as they should be paid for all the hard work that they do. I think they should be given more flexibility in the work area and that their employers should be nicer to them. Like for example how one of the people that Barbara met during her job working as a maid, she was not feeling well the entire time and was still working her hardest without getting any breaks to get better. These workers aren’t even getting paid to at least eat a proper meal or to find good housing to live in. If someone who was raising a child alone, it would be extremely hard and a low paying job that only paid about $6 an hour would not be nearly enough to live off
They women did not even have rights over their own property. The church also looked down upon a family if the women became in control of certain roles of the house. This time frame was not pleasant to the women, it thrived in the literacy
The Kypselli women in the film were degraded and perceived to be bad luck and as such were not allowed to be in areas, for example, wine caves for fear they will spoil the wine or the courtyards where the men smoke and relax. Watching the film it was very apparent the men were superior over the women, they determined the rules in which the women followed and as a result were exploited within the village. The women, perceived to be deceitful and not to be trusted, the men marry the women but only for economic reasons, not for love. Time is rarely spent with their husbands and although they live in the same house they are separated by rooms. Fascinatingly enough, the men are not allowed near the baking/cooking process although they can observe.
Mrs. Bennet does not put much effort into getting to know her children. The Bennet daughters mom is self centered, which explains why she treats her children the way she does. All she wants is for her daughters to marry a man who is high in the social class and is rich. Mrs. Bennet stresses over this during the whole
Since people believe that women have always been responsible for work at home and in the labour force, they have always been paid less, both when their jobs are not the same as men, and when the work is exactly the same. According to the statistics by Historica Canada (), women earned 52.8% of what men earned in 1911, 58% in 1971 and 66% in 1996. This type of discrimination is commonly seen in India, however in India it is difficult for women to get occupations in certain main cities due to cultural and religious issues according to the article by Chatterjee
Women had no rights when it came to working and since they didn’t have rights not many women got employed. Also, the jobs that were available were not for women and if mill owners decided to hire women they would go and hire immigrant women instead. The reason they would hire these immigrant women was because they accepted any amount of money so the owners of the mill would make more profit than they would if they paid American women to work for them. However, if a women did get a job they would normally get paid less than men did since they weren’t seen as equal to them and the conditions were usually not the best. Since there were no laws against discrimination in the 1800’s there was nothing an American women could do to demand the equality they deserved in the workforce.
As described in Document 1, the woman says that she has learned to knit and make stockings for the servants. She feels kind of like a slave, because she has to stay at home with hardly any freedoms. Since the husband was the provider at this time, there typically was not a lot of revenue and funds for purchase of things like a cap or gown just like this woman says. At this time, women even like Martha Washington were not highly influential or played a significant role and she was even the President 's
In this novel the wealthy are even separated into two classes; old money and new money. Jordan Baker as with the Buchanans all possess old or family money and all live in East Egg. These people look down upon those who live in West Egg because they did not acquire their money the regular path but instead worked for it. At one time Jordan asked Nick presumptuously, “you live in West Egg?” (Fitzgerald 11).
From the early years of America till the time of the Civil War, women were commonly considered to be weak and meek. Before the American Civil War, women were also considered to be very dependent on men. Men were the ones who made the money and worked for a living. Women were often in the home and taking care of their family and their house. It was very surprising when a woman would try to become more independent such as Harriet Tubman, who left her husband in order to help free the slaves.
Jane Eyre, a diary written by Charlotte Bronte, is told by the perspective of a young, fiery woman by the name of Jane, who comes into contact with two men. Two men who ultimately guide her towards two life paths, forcing her to choose one, leaving the other behind. In the novel, Jane is faced with the choice between two potential husbands, Rochester, the fiery man for whom she loves truly or St. John, a more icey, practical choice for Jane, creating an significant difficult choice. In the end, Jane chooses Rochester leaving behind St. John, which shows how Jane is better suited for Rochester because of their similar moralities, life goals, and indestructible bond. In the novel, St. John distinctly serves as a foil to Rochester, for he proves to the reader that their moralities are weaved into the final decision Jane is ultimately faced with.
