Storyboard Text

  • Objective: How women and educators sought changes in the Industrial Age?
  • Women were treated unequally in the Industrial Age. Some women started to campaign for fairness and women suffrage.
  • Middle Class
  • I am only expected to stay at home and raise children. I have no property right, no suffrage, and are forbidden from schools!
  • I worked as hard as men, but I am only paid half!
  • Working Class
  • Don't they see what we do is kindly protecting them from the greedy politics?
  • Nevertheless, they met intense opposition.
  • Women are too emotional to be allowed to vote!
  • They are not as capable as men!
  • How absurd! Women's place are in the home, not in government!
  • Brave and eloquent women suffragist, such as Sojourner Truth, replied by arguing that women and men are equal. But the suffrage struggle succeeded only after WWI.
  • "I have as much muscle as any man, and can do as much work as any man. Nobody ever helps me into carriage...or gives me any best place! And ain't I a woman?"
  • While the struggle for women suffrage had not gone any further, educators successfully pushed change in public education.
  • Before, very few children were in school. Teachers had little schooling themselves.
  • After 1881, schooling girls and boys became compulsory. I must receive training at Normal Schools to become a teacher.
  • Upper-class families could also afford going to universities, learning courses like sciences, ancient history, language, philosophy, law and religion.
  • However, girls were sent to school studying only for the hope of becoming better wives and mothers. The subjects taught didn't include Mathematics and Science. Only few colleges opened for women.
