User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In the early 1900s, home family life was often centered around traditional gender roles, with the father as the breadwinner and the mother as the homemaker. Children were expected to be obedient and respectful, and discipline was often more strict compared to modern times. Household chores were divided amongst family members, and leisure activities usually revolved around the home, such as reading, playing board games, or listening to the radio.

What food did high class rich people eat in the 1900?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The foods consisted of pretty much the same as they do today. The production is what has changed the most. The foods were not processed as they are today. The chickens came from the local farmer. They were not mass produced on an assembly line. The meats came from the butcher after having a full life with lots of room to move and healthy food (not corn starch as they are fed today). In few words their foods were not dipped in sugar and fat, and produced in an inhumane manor. They still had candies and stuff like that but the consumption of them were not anywhere near what they are today. Hope this has been helpful.

How much did food cost in 1666?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Take the amount of dollars you spend on groceries now and divide that by the spot price of gold per ounce. Then multiply that amount by 20 ($20 an ounce of gold in 1776 more or less). So let's say you spent $4000 a year on goceries now, then the equivalent cost in 1776 would be $4000/$899 (spot gold price per ounce as of Jan 23 2009) = 4.44. Take 4.44 multiply by $20 = $88 per year for food in 1776. The higher cost of food now is soley due to the inflation of prices caused when the dollar went off the gold standard in 1932 or so during the FDR administration. Until that time, prices had been mostly stable for the past 100 years. Since then, prices have risen between 5% to 7% per year (on average) due to a paper fiat currency issued by the private bak called the Federal Reserve Bank.

Milk didn't come in cartons in the 1900s. It came in glass bottles. It was 7 cents a quart, so about 3 or 4 cents a pint. Yes, Tyler. I improved your answer. See? See, how it always comes and hits you in the face? Even on the internet.

Asked by Wiki User

I'm sure the cost of a newspaper in 1927 would vary on the part of the contry it was bought, and the publication. I do have a "Baltimore American" newspaper (the pink edition) that cost .02 cents a copy. That's twice the price for your thoughts.

What is Emily pankhurst famous for?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Emily Goulden was born on 14 July 1858 in Manchester into a family with a tradition of radical politics. In 1879 she married Richard Pankhurst, a lawyer and supporter of the women's suffrage movement. He was the author of the Married Women's Property Acts of 1870 and 1882, which allowed women to keep earnings or property owned before and after marriage. His death in 1898 was a great shock to Emily.

In 1889 Emily founded the Women's Franchise League, which fought to allow married women to vote in local elections. In October 1903 she helped found the more militant Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), an organisation that gained much attention for its militant activities and whose members were the first to be christened 'suffragettes'. Emily's daughters Christabel and Sylvia were both active in the cause. British politicians, press and public were astonished by the demonstrations, window smashing, arson and hunger strikes of the suffragettes. In 1913, WSPU member Emily Davison was killed when she threw herself under the King's horse at the Derby as a protest at the government's continued to give women the right to vote.

Emily was imprisoned and went on ahunger strike during imprisonment, resulting in violent force-feeding. The government passed what became known as the 'Cat and Mouse' Act. Hunger striking prisoners were released until they grew strong again, and then re-arrested.

Emily's cause was ended abruptly on the outbreak of war in 1914, when Emily turned her energies to supporting the war effort. In 1918 the Representation of the People Act gave voting rights to women over 30. Emily died on 14 June 1928, shortly after women were granted equal voting rights with men.

At the beginning of the Twentieth Century, larger colleges and universities in the United States established football teams, based upon rules modified from English rugby. In 1901, professional baseball expanded from eight National League teams with the inception of the American League, and its eight teams, located in New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.
