I will pay for the following article How did changes in or conflicts over gender roles and/or sexuality impact womens experi ence in colonial North America. The work is to be 4 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. How the lives of women were during this period of conflicts and what were their roles? How were their lives affected by the conflicts and gender disparity and what role did they play thereafter? These and other questions arising concerning women shall be discussed in this essay. This discussion shall be brought forth using sources majorly based on discussions about women of the eighteen century.
Thesis statement: The lives of native Northern American women during the period between 1700- 1800 greatly changed due to the effects of colonial powers and conflicts that affected their role and participation in the society. The colonial effects altered the gender roles and women were thus subjected to a different life experience.
In the eighteenth century, women’s lives remained in the center of domestic dominion. this however changed as new opportunities for education and other life experiences developed after the revolution period (“Gender & Race in the Chesapeake Colonies”). For both men and women, marriage was held in high regard. These concepts of marriage however varied with different groups of people, where many perceived marriage as a way of confining women under the control of men. Marriage created both the physical and spiritual perspective. In fact, it acted as the beginning to formation of families and a primary aspect in the creation of strong and law-abiding societies.
Native women had for so long carried the burden of the family. Their lives were almost like those of the slaves. They had to toil all through to cover up for their lazy husbands. Women had a crucial role to play during the colonial discontent with the royal authority. Their discontentment was evidenced through the consumer activism. this greatly earned them recognition for their efforts. Although their efforts were not recognized in most cases, they worked tirelessly to express their loyalty to the nation.
