Your salary works liberating. At least, this is some point of view. Socialists and feminists will simply say that woman is in such a bad position due to the capitalists and those greedy persons who benefited from the industrial revolution.
The popular viewpoint is that the woman was left behind at home. In rural communities, they are just suitable for the delivery of new kids and doing the household. Simply serve the men and that is all woman were for.
If we look at the evidence that we see a completely different picture.
The woman went to the factories for an easy reason.
If we look at what happened then it is interesting to see. The dark ages where over. After half of Europe was killed due to the flu the population increased. With it, the salaries went up.
If we see at what’s happening in the mind of the feminists that we see that they had problems with the fact that woman where paid.
The salary payments allowed a woman to take care of there own. Which revolutionized the method of marriage. They had economic independence. Off course it is something the feminists ignored.
