Industrial Revolutions
   One of the key social changes introduced by the industrial revolution
    were those made to the classes. The proletariat class emerged as a result
    of the displacement of farmers and the creation of jobs in factories.
   The role of working class women in the working place also changed, in
    that they were hired in factories. Despite this, they did not immediately
    gain suffrage or equity, which was fought for by the Pankhursts and
    campaigned for by the other women’s suffrage committees.
   Demographically, the population grew, especially in cities where
    urbanization was rampant. “Death rates fell as people ate better and
    kept cleaner, and as public health measures increased the safety of the
    water supply, improved the sanitation of cities, of combated epidemics,
    and taught new standards of personal hygiene” (574)

Spodek, 574-583                                                       GC
   Immigration fuels urbanization as the
    immigrants are willing to (or have to) take
    factory jobs jobs and move into the city,
    which provides labor for industrialization.

 Women benefited from the Industrial Revolution
  as they gained suffrage over time, social equity
  as they increasingly became providers for their
  families rather than or alongside their husbands.
 Women continued to be valued less, earning
  only supplementary income rather then a
  “family wage” (578) and being replaced by
  farmers and immigrant men gradually.
 Women would eventually enter domestic service
  and secretarial occupations.                 GC
Today’s world is continually changing. The industrial revolution
  has officially ended, but individual nations’ industrial
  revolutions are still occurring and technological innovations
  continue to come at an increasing speed from the advanced
  nations and these things will continue to change our world
  economically and politically. The effect of individual industrial
  revolutions can be seen in quickly developing nations such as
The world’s industrial revolution is near its end in that we no
  longer make social and political changes through innovation to
  the same scale as was done in the Industrial Revolution.
