Why Do Feminists Claim That Women Didn't Work?

Postby deangelo51 » Thu Dec 22, 2011 6:01 am

There's a saying that goes something like this ... 'if a lie is repeated enough in public, people will believe that it's true.' For example, feminists love to say that women weren't allowed to work before the feminist movement of the 60s and 70s. This claim is false. Before the Industrial Revolution, society was completely agrarian, meaning that the economy was based on agriculture. In this era, women worked on farms and in the marketplace. Women also worked as homemakers, babysitters, nannies and cooks. The need for a woman to work depended on the family situation and how much money her husband made. Most of society was still agricultural or semi-agricultural up until the middle of the 20th century. During the Industrial Revolution, women worked in factories. The first labor laws protected women and boys under 13. Boys over 13 and men were not protected by the first labor laws in the West. In fact, the term "wage slave" is believed to have been coined by two female workers in the 19th century.

So why are we repeatedly told by feminists that women weren't allowed to work if history clearly proves that the claim is false?

Feminist try to make women look like the victims of an oppressive patriarchy that didn't even allow women to leave the house until the 1950's, when we all know that that is complete fabricated BS created by feminist themselves. Women have worked way before the 20's. They've been allowed to become doctors, dentist, lawyers, inventors, and other great feats way before the feminist showed up. I don't think all feminist are that dumb. I mean, it's not like the "triangle shirtwaist factory fire" wasn't an example of women working in factories. And, it's not like women didn't work during the years before industrialization. Women were allowed to work, and the the companies wanted to get "more" women into the workforce. It's just that women knew there place in life, they knew that the nuclear family structured with the woman being the care taker, and the man being the provider. it was a good plan until feminist messed it up with their idiotic teachings.

The best thing to do is to believe their lies. I've know about what you're saying; what you're saying is the truth. Feminists want to give the impression all women were submissive brainless slaves to their husbands; that they had no choice but to be thus. They lie because they want women to join their cause.

I haven't heard anyone say that women weren't allowed to work before the 60s.

In 2004, 58% of all women aged 15 and over were part of the paid work force, up from 42% in 1976. In contrast, the proportion of men who were employed fell during this period from 73% to 68%.

As a result, women accounted for 47% of the employed work force in 2004, up from 37% in 1976
In all of this progress, the traditional family was slowly destroyed. What had taken thousands of years to preserve mankind, the family unit involving one man providing the food and shelter, and one woman providing the care and maintenance of home, was erased in a few decades.
