Canada In The 20th Century: A time of Change and Prosperity
Transcript of Canada In The 20th Century: A time of Change and Prosperity
Canada experienced both good times and bad times during the 20th century. Canada made through both world wars and the great depression coming out of it stronger than ever. Canada gained full independence from Britain and grew as a nation. Woman had more growth than any Canadian during the 20th century.
At the beginning of the 20th century, woman were not allowed to vote, and were could be housewives,teachers and nurses. But, through the world wars and depression, women got the chance to work in mens jobs and even served in the army. Women gained independence over the years, and by the end of the 20th century, women were completely equal to men and had all the same rights that they had. They went from being just housewives, to joining men in the workforce.
Canada started off the 20th century as a dominion of the British Empire. They got on the fast track to total independence after WWI. Canada single-handedly won battles for the allies, and was granted a seat in the league of nations and the treaty of Versailles. Canada also received more autonomy through the statue of Westminster in 1931 and during WWII when Canada was not automatically at war because Britain was. Canada got a revised constitution in 1982 and Dominion Day is changed to Canada Day.
Do my themes represent Change or Continuity?
My themes represent change because, women's roles in Canadian society changed throughout the 20th century. Canadian Nationalism is also represents change because, as the century went on, Canada became more and more independent from Britain. Canada started off as a dominion in the 20th century, and ended it as a fully independent nation, and as one of the most powerful nations in the world. So there is quite a bit of change with my themes.
Do my themes relate?
My themes do relate because, women's independence was a strong movement throughout the 20th century especially in the first half. Women became much more independent in the 20th century than they had been in previous years. Also, Canada's growing autonomy and growing identity as a nation and both men and woman contributed to Canada's independence from the British Empire.
-Women and how their roles in society have changed
To conclude this summative, the role of women has changed a great deal in from 1900 to 2000 in Canada. They went from all being housewives, do being out and about in the workforce with men. Also, Canada in general changed a great deal in that same time. Canada became a completely independent nation in the 20th century from Britain. Canada started off the 20th century as a simple dominion of the British Empire, and ended it as not only a completely independent nation, but as one of the strongest and most powerful nations in the world.
