Sport During the Great Depression

Sport during the great depression for most people was a get away, even though they were losing money they still could play a little bit of community sport. Things like a community cricket/soccer or footy game could lift the spirits of the community. Although professional sport went downhill because of the lack of crowds and them taking pay cuts. But the importance of sport was big during this time, it got families minds of the money issue they were having.

Family life in the Great Depression

http://australia.gov.au/about-australia/australian-story/great-depression

 

Even before the stock market crashed (wall street) Australia was aready at 10% unemployment rate. After the stock market crash that doubled to 20% throughout the middle of 1930 and then when it hit its peak in 1932 it hit 32%. This made it hard for families, the father and older sons los their jobs. Some families had to leave and sell their homes for money, which raised tension in families and broke them apart. Alot of men just left their families and became interant workers, and leff if they had a son to make a living. This made it hard on families and how hrd it was to keep families together during the great depression.

Women in the Great Depression

The folllowing website, is a slideshow about how the women were affected. It has a slides of women. "Most women experienced the Depression in terms increased domestic labor as wage cuts and unemployment or partial employment sharply reduced household budgets." The slideshow has different slides talking about how husbands and sons were at home nmroe often and the women were not used to this. With the tension of men not working as much and tension building, this lead to a rise in domestic violence. The women were told to me more sympathetic to the men, and make them feel  more manly. Women become more depressed themselves and the marriage and birth rate went down. Meaning the population was decreasing during this time. 1931 American Federation of labor enforced a position endorsing discrimination in hiring women if there husbands were earning a decent wage. The government made women give up their jobs to men who were unemployed. The aritcle gives a good explanation on what the women had to go through just because the men were losing there jobs. In the conclusion of the great depression, families were broken and never spoke again, or they temporarily did not speak.
