  2. In this image, it looks like women are working on power looms in a textile factory. So, it can be deduced that this image is either from or about the Industrial Revolution. During this era of growth and inventions, factory jobs started to become popular with women. It was preferred by many as opposed to working as "hired help," which was often the only other job available to them at the time. In the mills, although they toiled 12 hours a day, six days a week, the fact that they now had a few hours of everyday leisure that was entirely their own was quite unprecedented for them and very satisfying. And from the few faces that are showing and from the stances of the women, I would say that they do seem tired, but also fairly content.

  3. The image portrays the effects of the industrial revolution, and the size and magnitude of inventions being used in this transformative time period. Additionally, the picture shows how women became acclimated and indeed worked in factory jobs, which wasn't common before this time period. The fact that women were allowed to work in such a factory showed the beginning tides of changing gender roles which can be seen to this day.

  4. In this image, women are working on looms in a clothing factory. This shows that women were mostly the workers during the Industrial revolution. That is because they preferred the factory job over becoming "hired help."

  5. This image seems to be portraying women working in a factory of some kind, most likely for fabrics and clothing. During the industrial revolution, countless women would choose to work in factories because it was one of the the only jobs available for women at the time. This was the beginning of a shift in gender roles.

  6. This picture is of women working in some sort of factory during the Industrial Revolution. Women started to work outside their homes during the Industrial revolution. I feel like this was the start of women defying the gender roles that were always pushed on them. What I learned that really interested me was that women worked in coal mines during the Industrial Revolution. This fascinated me because coal mines seemed to be more of a masculine job during those times and the fact that women started to work there as well really showed the started of what got us here today with both men and women working together and owning their own businesses.

  7. From the description I was given, it looks like women working in a factory. Women were working in factories, and didn't get to see their families at all. They would get up early and go to bed late.

  8. In the photo, we see women working which, at the time, was rare. We also see a woman appearing to instruct a man on what to do. During this time, women were not as respected in the workplace.

  9. The image is an artist rendering of women working in a factory during the Industrial Revolution. As mentioned previously by Kelly, the new labor opportunities bred by the era's momentous surge in industry offered a refreshing new option for women. Factory jobs, rigorous and demanding as they were, acted as a more independent alternative to the traditional role of servant or hired help. As "mill girls," circumstances still weren't ideal--they were constantly and closely supervised inside and outside the workplace to ensure their proper behavior--but at the end of the day, it was nonetheless a step up. They were entrusted to toil away in a fashion and setting associated traditionally with men, and as time past, they were able to demand increasingly equal treatment.

  10. My opinion of the image is that this era would be around the time when women didn't have the right to take men's jobs. After the climax of the Industrial Revolution, women were recruited into the working field in order to meet the demands of consumers.

  11. The image is of woman working in a fabric factory during the industrial revolution, which was not common. I find it interesting that woman are working in a factory but still wearing dresses.
