Beau Blake's insight:

During the Industrial Revolution, every member of the family continued to play a role. Men, women and children all worked in factories or mills. Women and children were just as valuable to a factory owner as men. The work was difficult, exhausting and, at time, dangerous.

As the Industrial Revolution continued, a sharp distinction between work and home, public life and private life, emerged. Working hours were long. Domestic life was damaged because when families returned to their homes after work, they had little time for interaction. Government legislation allowed child labour to be phased out. Working hours for women were decreased.
Men were paid the highest wages of the family unit. There were few restrictions placed on men in employment options or working hours. Men became the breadwinners of the family.

Gender roles established during the Industrial Revolution came to dominate the perception of men's and women's abilities for the next two hundred years.

 

This is a reliable source as it was from a schooling website, and had no way for someone to edit the work. I give it 4 out of 5.
