The issue women have in workplace.

By Justina Nwaigwe and Tatiana Paden

Historical background

In the late 1760 - 1830, women experience inequality in the work place. Women make less (87.5%) than what men make.

Then: Impact on Great Britain

  • Social: It created a new role for women in society and a new lifestyle giving women many new social expectations

  • Economic: Made a boom in the amount of factories and companies in cities, making buildings bigger to be able to hold more workers and create more good with mass production

  • Political: Caused for many reforms against farm owners and factories having poor working standards and long work hours

Now: Its Impacts on the World

  • Social: Women have gotten out of factories and are offered many more job opportunities in hundreds of fields of work, but in England thy still only make up 47% of the workforce.

  • Economic: Women still don't have equal pay to men and the wage gap in the UK in 2012 was 9.6%

  • Political: Many Women have began creating policies and bills to stop sexual discrimination in the workplace as well as have equal pay for both sexes

The Modern Day Counterpart: Large Wage Gap

Even after all of these years, women are still not payed the same as men all over the world. Even back in the industrial revolution there was a wage gap, but the fact that it still exists today is sexist and very discriminatory.
