This presentation focuses on the changing lives of white, urban, working class women during the Industrial Revolution. The broad question is: why did the lives of these women change during the Industrial Revolution and what were those changes? There are also a number of sub questions such as: how did changes in agricultural practices and beliefs lead to changes for Industrial women? Additionally, what new opportunities were opened for women? How were they challenged and by whom? Were their actions conscious or unconscious? Did action precede intent? Were these women proactive in their social and economic advancement, or did they unintentionally take action to change their position in society.
