Women in the workplace during the Great Depression

Women during the Great Depression was quite tough for them because they got kicked out of the work place before the men simply because they didn't work as hard as the men did. But some women did work because they were quite hard workers. So most women stayed at home when their husbands went off to work if they even had a job, but what the women did at home wash the washing, dishes, cooking and clean and much more. Eventually the women came back into the work place shortly after the Great Depression and actually came back heaps stronger as before when they lost their job during the Great Depression.

Family Life in the Great Depression

Family life during the great depression was a struggle because the family was not together most of the time they were often split wife at work and husband at work. Also family life was a struggle because some families out of the husband and wife neither had a job that meant they couldn’t support their children or each other. Many people lost their job because the company they worked for couldn't afford to pay them so they lost their job. Really in the Great Depression families really struggled with keeping there families with food to eat and water to drink after the Great Depression it all started to reform and families got stronger again because they where employed with a job to give them some money to spend on there families.

A good range of sources on your bibliography. You make some very good points. If you want to make the most of your efforts, and I can see that you have worked very hard, copy and paste what you have written onto a word document. This will help you identify spelling errors. Then all you have to do is correct the spelling errors and copy and paste them back into your scoop.it. Remember, this task is due any time tomorrow. I won't be at school and tomorrow's double lesson will have you all looking at events in Germany pre-WW2. Regardless, a good effort Jordan, you should be proud. :)
