Transcript of Transformation of the Women's Role and Issue

Introduction Transformation of the Women's Role and Issues Women's Fashion Women's Workplaces Year: 1914
- Women were not allowed to participate directly in the battle so they helped out in the Western Front.
- For example many of the women were drivers of the ambulance of Red Cross carrying wounded soldiers between trains from the front to hospitals and ships.

- After a while many of the Canadian women started to take jobs that men did such as labouring, operating fishing boats, jobs which include transportation, secretarial jobs and about 35000 people worked in munitions factories.
- Although women worked just like men, their wages were lower than the men they have replaced because employers still did not believe that women should be involved in workplaces. Women's Fashion Year: 1940
- Different from 1914, women started to work more in heavy machinery factories.
- Women who did the work were described as terms of 'Rosie the Riveter' which meant women who had proved themselves that they are invaluable and important in the workplaces.
- Single women worked in factories and have worked for long hours as well as many of them moved into cities from rural areas.
- Married women also worked in factories and did their house works. For these women, the provincial governments began to provide day-care support. Year: 1920s
- Compared to the year 1910 women's fashion had changed, in the 1920s the waists had vanished and flat-chested look became a dominant fashion to women.
- Additionally, boyish look with short hair was one of the popular fashions and cosmetic appearances became openly enhanced.
Year: 1922
- Compared from the 1910 to 1920s, in the year of 1922 women showed their arm and legs more.
- As a result, women wore more greater varieties of
clothes freely in public. Women's Work Women's Right to Vote Year: 1915
- When the Liberals were elected in Manitoba they promised that women will get the right to vote.
- As a result a legislation granting female suffrage was passed in the next year.
Year 1916-1917
- Although the Liberals promised for the right to vote for women, women reformers still had very little influence when they asked for help to politicians.
- Canadian law stated “No woman, idiot, lunatic, or criminal shall vote.”
- Women had no power to defeat the politicians who did not support prohibition unless they did not have the right to vote. Women's Right to Vote Year: 1916-1917
(- Female Suffrage: The right for women to vote)
- Differently from 1915, women started to argue for female suffrage and also for the other rights that women did not have. (Example: Married women could not own property.)
- They argued that if women had more influence to the government they can have an end to child labor, corruption and pollution of air and water. Also, if they had the right to vote, there would be more schools and less alcohol. Additionally, more women can be good mothers creating healthy and happy homes.
- Thus, later in 1916 and the next year Ontario and British Columbia were also voting in provincial elections for the women’s right to vote. In Canada, there were many changes in different events and one of the events was the transformation of the women’s role. Throughout the twentieth century in Canada, women have shown an enormous change towards better fashions, their workplaces, and their rights to vote.

- Most of the women in these days wore their hats wherever they went.
- Women's clothes were long sleeves, had fringes and frills that had were down to their ankle. As well as their chests openly shown and waists clearly shown in their dresses.
- Especially wealthy women stayed at homes and entertained themselves having and serving tea to their lady friends. The guests or lady friends who went over to visit houses did not remove their gloves or hats since that was the polite manner. Work Cited Bain, Colin M.

It is for sure that the women’s role towards fashion, workplaces, and their rights to vote has developed immensely to an advanced level. Year: 1918
- Finally, the biggest change in 1918, the old arguments about women being too delicate to participate in politics have been disproved and successfully the women won the election. Now the women had their rights to vote and other issues about their rights lead to a better way.
