Transcript of Did the industrial revolution lead to a sexual revolution.

By: Rima, Momal, Warda,
Edwards, Brian, Andy Industrial Revolution starting the path to women's rights. Yes -With women having the same jobs as the men, they started demanding equal rights at the workplace, as well as at home. More and more women began working in some way, and soon more and more women began demanding such rights as suffrage and equal pay.

-With the industrial revolution new job opportunities were overwhelming for both men and women. Women were now able to provide for themselves without depending on men for livelihood.

-Also, many women took jobs that traditionally only men held and they did them just as well. This idea of equality spread to other areas (politics, marriage, etc.) which then lead to a revolution.

- This also shows the role of enlightenment in the industrial revolution. No -The Industrial revolution did not lead to sexual revolution because it was more of a family interest rather than self-interest that led women to work;
Louise A. Tilly, Joan W. Scott and Miriam Cohen argued that what changed were not the attitudes but the external context.

-Young men moved on to other work and opportunities, leaving the impregnated women behind. Premarital sex was common with the expectation of marriage after wards. Even during the Industrial Revolution, many women still worked in at customary jobs instead of factories. Central role of women in families was typically taking care of children and tending to the barnyard

In city and country, women of popular classes had vital economical roles which gave them a powerful position. These types of women were not dependent nor powerless.Women wages were far lower than men. More young women worked outside the home in large cities. Leading cause of birthrates during the
industrial revolution

The age to get married was lowered therefore allowing more younger couples time to have kids This was important because it was seen as unacceptable for people to have children outside of marriage at this time.

Large improvement in medicine, lead to less deaths during child birth and allowed more children to grow up and have kids of there own.

Women no longer needed to be support by men because they were allowed to work on there own and live independently. there were less reasons to get married

The main cause for population increase was the discovery of vaccine for smallpox. This lowered the death rate significantly allowing more to survive and have kids of there own Did the attitudes stay the same, while the context changed,
leaving women pregnant and with no expectation of marriage? -Women did not work in factories, they did women jobs which resulted in wanting to have sexual pleasures however, higher class women would have no need to run away from parents but still sought sexual activities.

-Women jobs consisted of household job such as finances, sewing, carters, laundresses and street cleaners. Women without jobs stole, begged or went into prostitution then a woman’s money would be sent to her family, or her income was controlled by her parents; Some girls had to live away from home and instead live closer to where they worked, nuns would be the supervisors

-Industrial revolution brought out more unskilled, homeless workers. Women did not want illegitimacy they wanted to get married but being homeless, living in poverty, unstable jobs, ability to travel far distances and lack of social protection, prevented them from getting married; Later on, girls only wanted someone because they were lonely and poor, girls that ran from family desired finding a man that could provide. This Evidence shows that -Women gained independence by leaving their homes and starting work which lead to sexual revolution.

-The industrial revolution helped to put forward the ideals of feminism, but it is not the only factor to contribute to their success in the modern world.

-When women and men began working together, it caused more cases of intimacy which also puts forward the idea of babies being born.

-Lives of men in the working class was awful so they decided to drink their sorrows which then lead to doing foolish things.
Everyone knows what that means!

-Women and men would be so stressful that in order to relax was to have a social life or relationships with their companions. Did the Industrial revolution lead to a sexual revolution? Was the revolution beneficial ? Questions we'd like to as you -Based on what you know about the work of the industrial revolution, what would you have done?

-Was the increased population due to the industrial revolution or was it just a part of life at the time?

-Were women having sex out of pleasure, or just to de-stress from the work of the industrial revolution?

- If you had to work at the time of the industrial revolution do you think that would lead you to the sexual revolution? (In the case of a man or women).

-If you had to choose between being part of the industrial revolution whether a middle class or observer while others are starving and tired or choosing another revolution to be apart would you?

Would the feminist movement be where it is today or even exist without the industrial revolution?

Is the sexual revolution the reason women are often looked on as objects of desire?

Is this revolution as significant as the others? In 1968, the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth asked females aged 14 to 21 what they expected to be doing at age 35. About 30 percent of the 20 to 21 year olds said they would be working. By 1975, 65 percent of the younger women, then also 20 to 21 years old, said they would be working. The percentage rose until 1979 and then remained substantially unchanged throughout the 1980s. -The pros of the industrial revolution were new jobs which resulted in a general rise in the income and the standard of living; this also resulted in growth of knowledge of machinery.

-People were stuck in a rut of tending crops and watching the grass grow. Nothing changed and not many things were easy-- they were simple, but not easy. Now there were more opportunities to live modernly for more people.

-The best outcome of the industrial revolution was all the modern inventions that scientists were motivated to create. Such things were; the light bulb, flu shots, X-Rays, telephones, etc. These inventions made everyday things much easier for centuries to come. Pros Was the revolution beneficial ? - During the industrial revolution their was also many cons there was unfairness of the working conditions and wages in the factories. Although many of them chose women to work over men, this was only because they paid women much less.

-Women were paid two dollars an hour less than the average pay of a man working for the same job. Not only were women treated unfairly, but children worked for even less and were forced to do so.

-No Matter what you were paid, you had to suffer through the awful environments of the factories. They were extremely dangerous because of all the lung-consuming toxins that filled the air.

-Crime was also a huge problem and diseases spread quickly in the more populated groups of people because of the lack of sanitation. Cons
