A 1900s lady who describes what era she comes fromand the issues that go with it.
No. Well, in this comic strip we are going to learn about just that. We are going to be discovering some history about Hazardous Conditions in Women.
Have you ever looked in history and realized a comparison between back then and now?
We already know about women not being able to voted,but it goes more deeper than that and Upton Sinclair explains it all.
This quote reminds me of when now men do things to women, they will get fired or if they are not (the women will still get told on).
For example, in a 1906 newspaper Sinclair states , " I met one man whose daughter had secured employment in Packington no leess than six times in a year, only to leave her job within a few weeks because she refused to accept the conventionthat she was at the disposal of her foreman."
I Also found this horrific quote that states that"Just before I came to Packington a woman gave birth to a child in one of the corridors of a slaughter-house, where she had crawled away into a dark corner, wishing to get rid of the child, she threw it into a car load of meat which was in one of the cooking rooms, and only the fact that the baby happened to cry out the instant the car was being dumped preventing it from being canned.
I know, this is some scary stuff for a baby, but that is why Sinclair made the book , to show that this stuff is not fake and it actually happens to people like you and me. That's also why the Supreme Court had a case called Muller v. Oregon which uphelded laws limiting womens work hours or Theodore Roosevelt's Square Deal which eliminated nasty and unhealthy food.
This topic has to do with things that are happening now because for years women have been fired from from their bosses and paid less and treated badly and they still treated that way now . I believe that if " The Jungle" was made today it would change how a lot of people behave, especially for men.
