we were given a project a couple of weeks back on gender equality/feminism so here's a timelineish sort of thing depicting the rapid changes that occurred in the early 20th century. it begins with a early 1900s lady who was basically an object and belonged to her husband/father...didn't do much except look pretty/pay calls/drink tea and have babies. moving onto a domestic servant, to show that women were beginning to work more but were still unfairly treated, maids would be paid less than footmen because the footmen added 'class' to a household whilst a maid was just there to do duties for ridiculous hours in a day. of course the suffragettes were going to appear in this and i had to sneak Gwen in too eheh. but the man wasn't supposed to look like Arthur but he kinda did anyway, oops. Ending with a 1920s flapper...when women began to smoke, drink, wear make up and in some cases vote/not worry about marriage before sex.
this has taken a ridiculous amount of time and now i'm very tired.
