Women were believed to be the civilizing force, taking care of the children and home, and that society could not survive without them (Moran). Due to this sexist ideology many women didn’t get jobs due to the hostility they would face from the rest of society. This causes a problem during the depression when may families could use all the money they could get. The Women’s Bureau asserted that wives who held outside jobs were destroying the
You are a woman and you are not allowed to go to school! Was the biggest unnecessary thing for women, they were not allowed to go to school because men though that they could not do other jobs except being housewife. This idea was entirely wrong because women have proven over and over again that they are capable of doing everything that a man can. They are equal to men because they are human and there is not any extra ability that a man has in comparison. All around the world, women were not even allowed to vote because men thought that they did not know anything about politics and were not able to make such complicated decisions.
But both women whilst they work they are expected to cook, clean, and take care of children at the same time. In political side, Dark Ages women can not hold any position in government or serve as provosts or work as officials. While Saudi women have been part of the Shura Council, the top advisory body. The major difference between Saudi women and Dark Ages is even though the women during Dark Ages works the same job as the men and in the same factory she was paid less than men. Which caused women to have several jobs to earn the same pay.
Back in the 70’s women were financially dependent on their husband’s for almost everything because of unequal job opportunities. While there were still jobs for women, it was expected that they be a stay at home mom. Even more, women were overwhelmingly employed in certain occupations that have been traditionally oriented toward them, such as, domestic servants, salesclerks, factory workers, teachers, secretaries, and nurses. If they did get a better job, they would not get as much business as a man. Since no man would put his business affairs in the hands of a female lawyer or go to a lady doctor, despite the condition they were in.
This shows the absurdity that lies in blaming one gender of the equation since it requires male and female to create new life. However, it was very common to engage in premarital sex and when no charges were made, some people married out of wedlock. From then on, women were sought out to only raise children and their capabilities were limited to do housework. Besides physical strength, the main difference between a man and woman’s genetic makeup is the ability for women to be pregnant which doesn’t correlate to one’s intelligence. In early American life, married women were basically subjected to their husbands with no rights to own land, any amount of income they would make, would be given to their husbands.
Wollstonecraft disapproved largely of Rousseau’s critique by first addressing the rights that women were entitled to within the house. During this time, women were mostly confined to their homes and expected to please men as their only duty. The daily life of a married women was to be a care taker and look after the upbringing of offspring. In many cases, women were not permitted to work, but if they did, the job designation, hours and location would be restricted and require little to no skill set. Another restriction placed on women was that they were regarded as mere creatures of feelings that were incapable of forming rational thoughts.
Some people know the first part of the story which is how the women felt. The other part is how the man felt. Since the stone age, the man’s role in a family has always been to protect and provide for their families. The women’s role was to tend to the house and upbringing/ raising of the children. With those underlying expectations in play, men did not think women needed rights because (in a man’s view) all women did was take care of the family and the home.
The women in the Victorian era could not possibly do it unless they are lower class, the women who were single or who were unable to get married were skilled labors, more females would work than males. The way the women were groomed they would not be able to work in my field because it’s not considered feminine, females are too weak in the eyes of males, and they wouldn’t have time to take care of the house including the children, the husband, and the chores. For me working in a trade that is very male dominated, it is very hard to not get judged because people still kind of think in the old way were the male would work and the female would stay home, only I don’t do housewife I do construction that makes me feel empowered. The women of yesterday were shacked down by the man and forced into this mold that caused an uproar with other women who believe we are strong without men and that we can do whatever we
Women were getting more fair opportunities in the job world, but this happened very slowly because women still were discouraged from jobs. “Women were still actively discouraged from seeking higher education in many places and were not allowed in some schools. When they could go to school it was rarely for professional degrees.” (Beach). Women did not have any rights to education similarly like they didn’t have any with jobs. “An important corrective to a male-centered vision of the Great Depression is to note that while men 's employment rates declined during the period, women 's employment rates actually rose.
The present and future generations will never perceive the fight women went through to receive their rights. During the mid 1900’s women were expected to run the house rather than venture into the real world and work. Differences between men and women were very defined in the wrong ways in that time period. As the women worked their hardest, but all were ignored for their positive aspects. Although the women of that era were restricted the rights of education.
