12 Industrial Revolutions

13  One of the key social changes introduced by the industrial revolution were those made to the classes. The proletariat class emerged as a result of the displacement of farmers and the creation of jobs in factories.  The role of working class women in the working place also changed, in that they were hired in factories. Despite this, they did not immediately gain suffrage or equity, which was fought for by the Pankhursts and campaigned for by the other women’s suffrage committees.  Demographically, the population grew, especially in cities where urbanization was rampant. “Death rates fell as people ate better and kept cleaner, and as public health measures increased the safety of the water supply, improved the sanitation of cities, of combated epidemics, and taught new standards of personal hygiene” (574) Spodek, 574-583GC

14  Immigration fuels urbanization as the immigrants are willing to (or have to) take factory jobs jobs and move into the city, which provides labor for industrialization. GC

15  Women benefited from the Industrial Revolution as they gained suffrage over time, social equity as they increasingly became providers for their families rather than or alongside their husbands.  Women continued to be valued less, earning only supplementary income rather then a “family wage” (578) and being replaced by farmers and immigrant men gradually.  Women would eventually enter domestic service and secretarial occupations.GC

16 Today’s world is continually changing. The industrial revolution has officially ended, but individual nations’ industrial revolutions are still occurring and technological innovations continue to come at an increasing speed from the advanced nations and these things will continue to change our world economically and politically. The effect of individual industrial revolutions can be seen in quickly developing nations such as China. The world’s industrial revolution is near its end in that we no longer make social and political changes through innovation to the same scale as was done in the Industrial Revolution. GC
