The first source I will be evaluating is “Women in the Workforce During the Great Depression” by Sheila Mae Garnace. This source explains how The Great Depression affected women and what was done to overcome their hardships. This source values an in depth description of the impact The Great Depression had on women, and what was attempted to counter challenges such as discrimination
When women realized this, they decided to go on strike and hold posters up in the streets that showed what they believed in. Quality jobs were limited for women, but especially during the Great Depression (Lewis). Women had to work even harder in the Great Depression to get quality jobs because jobs were limited in the first place. Men took jobs because they needed the money which made it difficult for the women that wanted to work and become self-reliant. This left women with the jobs that didn’t provide acceptable workspace.
They did this so other women would have an enough to pay their bills and get food and clothes. Women were forced to do homework if they did not have any jobs. Some women left home because they were forced to work while men were not doing anything. Today women are treated kindly. Women do what they need to do.
Many women devoted most of their time trying to show men that they too can work just as hard as them. They tried to show men that they can do all the things that men thought only they could do. For example, in Sojourner Truth speech, she says, “I have ploughed, and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And a’n’t I a women? I could work as much and eat as much as a man-when I could get it-and bear de lash as well!”.
During the 1930’s, men were the main source of income and were highly depended upon to make money while women were expected to stay home with their children. Women weren't allowed to chase after their dreams and in the eye of society, not be able to complete a job position that a man held because they are not equal. “ Ranch with a bunch of guys on it ain’t no place for a girl, specially like her. “ (Steinbeck 78) This quote is addressing that a girl shouldnt be on this ranch full of men, making this a standard that women wouldn’t even be considered for a job in this field. The woman they are referring to in this quote is
Gender inequality is a very important issue in today’s world that needs to be solved. While it may seem that gender inequality has only been an issue in recent years, it has been going on since humans were living in caves. The stereotype that “men are strong, women are weak” began all the way back when humans were primitive. The primitive men were always the hunters and laborers, and the women were the ones who stayed at home, took care of kids, worked with agriculture, and made food and clothes. The labor women did was, in many ways, more difficult and stressful.
In particular, a lot of knowledged women, due to a good education, had a stable income base. When facing with the unequal status of men and women, they began to think deeply, and tried to overthrow the traditional concept of women. The rapid rise of the United States after World War II laid the economic foundation for the second women 's movement in the United
Early films included Latino actors, however they did not always have a lead role or even a positive one. And even the positive ones somehow had some negative aspects to them. For example, the film mentioned “the subconscious images that the rest of the world will have because of the roles Latinos play in
Author Alex Leptos interviewed many different people at big film companies about the issue of too many white people in Hollywood movies, and he says that, “Another thing is the issue of modern Hollywood fearing that casting a lesser-known, non-white actor may attract less viewers and therefore bring less profit.”(Leptos) This quote means that if you put lesser known actors in a movie it may now get as much viewership. So they sometimes cast them because known white people are gonna to get more viewership than a not-known colored person. This means that the film company will get more money if they cast a well known actor. For example, in the film, Ghost in the Shell, Scarlett Johansson got the part instead of a Japanese actor. The situation made lots of headlines, leading to more publicity for the movie, and they have Scarlett Johansson, who is a very well respected actor, which people may go see the movie just because she is in it.
