Although some slaves only had to work as little as nine hours a day, many did not have it this easy. Unlike Northern Laborers, slaves could be ordered to work into the night by their master.

Identity is affected by many factors; some of which include one’s gender, culture, and their family and friends. Although in today’s society gender stereotypes are decreasing, there are still some stereotypes about each gender. These perceived stereotypes have a big effect on someone’s identity.
