Extracts from this document...


Questions-Source work 1. How do sources 1 and 3 attack the role of working class men? Ans. They show the women as hard working and the man as, in the case of Source 3, as an abuser, and in the case of Source 1, as someone who doesn't care about his wife who does everything at home. Both the sources say that the woman does all the work while the man does nothing, or less than his fair share anyway. Source 1 says that women are still hard at work, while the men are enjoying themselves at the pub after work. Source 3 says that women bear the responsibility of looking after the entire family while men spend all the money meant for family needs. Source 1 shows the woman doing a lot, showing that she does a lot of work in the house, and shows the man just drinking, implying that he doesn't do much. Source 3 shows the man as big, imposing and threatening. 2. Study sources 1 and 2. What do you think the 2 women are hoping to gain from winning the vote? ...read more.


"His latest purchase" implies that the old man has almost bought the girl from her parents to show off. Both are from an upper class background, as shown by their clothes, which include gloves, a top hat, walking sticks, a bow tie, a posh suit and an expensive-looking dress. If women had the vote, this wouldn't happen, as they would be equal to men and could decide whom they wanted to marry when they came of age. 4. Do you think there are any differences between the aims and goals of working class and middle class women from the information in the sources 1-4? Ans. Only one source shows a working class family, and that is Source 3. The others show only middle- or upper-class people. Source 1 shows an upper-lower class family or a lower-middle class family, I'm not sure which. The working class women want improved conditions for themselves and their families, and they also want jobs to support their families, as shown by Source 3, where the woman doesn't have enough money to support the family, and the women want to do less work, as shown by the artist in Source 1. ...read more.


The battered woman is a conservative, as is the person who drew the cartoon, who wants to have things the way they are and maintain a status quo, and believes in the old ways and stereotypes. She is suggesting that having an abusive husband is better than having no husband at all. The woman is against the movement and wants to keep things the way they are, where men are dominant. This was the common public opinion of the time. 3. What techniques does the cartoonists use in Source 8 to ridicule the cause of women seeking the vote? Ans. Source 8 portrays the woman running through the crowd as being large and clumsy. She just ran through the village crowd, knocking over carts and people on her way to her oven where she left a cake while she went to vote. She looks like someone's aunt (thankfully not yours) and she looks short-sighted (she's squinting at things as she runs along). This doesn't fit the description of a fickle woman that changes her mind every couple of seconds, but fits the caption at the foot of the picture: "...Mrs. Jones remembers that she has left a cake in the oven..." This shows that the woman is forgetful and can't be trusted with a simple cake, let alone the vote. ...read more.
