feminism as women started standing up for themselves and demanding equal rights and opportunities as men.
It is evident that the women in nineteenth century were primarily expected to stay at home and carry on a role of a housewife but at the same time the women from poor, working-class sector were engaged in jobs in sweater industries, or various low- paid jobs like housemaids or even prostitutes. Therefore, it is difficult to decide the accuracy of the statement that most women seemed to have a place at home. Their career options were limited by their economic stability and opportunities. This was primary reason for the rise of early actions of feminism.

In Major Barbara, there are many things that reveal the actual conditions or at least the realities that were going on during 19th century, the time when this play was played. Throughout this paper I will try to list the social conditions of British society that Bernard Shaw was trying to get us, as audiences, know. For the audiences during that era this play might be a medium to realize that there were situations that they have to be aware of. Since we live in a slightly different era, we can take this drama as

There are two mind paths to choose when considering the statement that the compromises of the 1800s were not really compromises, but sectional sellouts by the North, that continually gave in to the South's wishes. The first is that the compromises really were compromises, and the second is that the compromises were modes of the North selling out. Really, there is only one correct mind path of these two, and that is that the North sold out during these compromises and gave the South what it wanted for minimal returns. The three main compromises of the 19th century, the compromises of 1820 (Missouri) and 1850 and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 each were ways for the south to gain more

The Role Appearance Versus Reality Plays in 19th Century English Literature
Nineteenth Century English novelists use themes to portray certain truths about the society in which they live. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte are three novels that portray the theme of appearance vs. reality in unique ways. In Pride and Prejudice, the heroine Elizabeth Bennett judges Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham based on her first impressions of them. Appearance versus reality in this novel illustrates that one's true character is often hidden by one's outward behavior. Mary Shelley uses actual physical appearance

Kate Chopin and Jane Austen could readily be referred to as literary heroines of the nineteenth century. Both women often challenged conventional societal methods within their works, which inherently caused these literary geniuses to write in complete secrecy. Chopin and Austen gave birth to characters such as Edna Pontellier in The Awakening, and Elizabeth Bennett, the renowned protagonist of Austen’s novella Pride and Prejudice. While noble in their respective ways one can easily mistake Edna and Elizabeth to be selfish creatures of society because of their ardent pursuit of happiness and love, and their disregard of nineteenth century societal constructs and family expectations.

Society in America in the early 19th century has been influenced and advanced by the growth of farming crops and plantations. America was mostly a land of farms early on, but with the growth of industrialization and urbanization in the late 19th century came an important change in America. Trying to sustain the job of a farmer during this period became difficult, agitating, and harsh, where small farmers could not compete with society and its large businesses. Due to laissiez-faire, farmers could not receive any aid from the government. This led to the government not being involved.

Sylvis it became a big organization consisting of about or over 600,000 members. It expanded and branched out and consisted of a variety of reform groups but sadly enough had a small relation to labor work.

It was a period in time that went from an economy based society on manual labor to an economy based on complex machinery. Areas that were once rural now were large industrial cities consisting of factories. This caused many people to move into these cities looking for employment.

Children’s lives and experiences of childhood have undergone many changes over the last two centuries. In order to evaluate these changes this essay will draw on a number of issues. The first will be child labour, and the processes by which it eventually became outlawed. The second will be the issue of schooling; not only the length of time at school day to day, but the age to which children stayed on at school. This essay will then go on to consider children and the family economy, their place within the family, as well as the issue of a prolonged childhood as a time of parental dependence

Linguistics as a study endeavors to describe and explain the human faculty of language.
In ancient civilization, linguistic study was originally motivated by the correct description of classical liturgical language, notably that of Sanskrit grammar by Pāṇini (fl. 4th century BC), or by the development of logic and rhetoric among Greeks. Beginning around the 4th century BC, China also developed its own grammatical traditions and Arabic grammar and Hebrew grammar developed during the Middle Ages.

The United States of America is the land of opportunity for many who come to her beautiful shores. Many are in search of the American dream as told by generations; they come for a chance to live in a place that welcomes all nationalities with open arms. This may be the case now, but during the 19th century that land of opportunity was not available to all. Racism and discrimination would take the place of the American dream for a race of people in search of their fare share.

proud of their country and have the belief that their country or independant nation is superior to others. In the 19th
century nationalism was extremely prevenant, though it would be replaced by patriotism. Though many benefited
from Nationalism, it caused unnecessary destruction in the 18th and 19th centuries in Europe. It caused uprisings
