Event 1: 1877 to 1945
Name of the event:
Triangle Shirtwaist Fire
When it took place:
March 25, 1911
Where in the US:
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City
Who was involved:
The 500 young immigrant workers, many of whom were women. 146 died and many others
were injured. Progressive Era workplace reform activists and the International Ladiesâ?? Garment
Workersâ?? Union, who had been fighting for safer working conditions.
What circumstances contributed to the event:
Unsafe working conditions created by the existence of few workplace safety laws and lax
enforcement of building codes. The workers had been locked into the building to prevent them
from taking breaks or stealing and so when it caught on fire, they had no way out. Many
jumped to their death from the ninth floor rather than burn. The New York District Attorney
tried the building owners for manslaughter but they were acquitted.
How this event was historically significant:
This event demonstrated the danger that many industrial workers faced during the early 1900s
and supported the case made by Progressive reformers for improving working conditions.
Event 2: 1877 to 1945
Name of the event: Womenâ??s participation in World War II
When it took place:
1941 to 1945
Where in the US:
Throughout the United States and overseas.
Who was involved:
American women throughout the nation contributed to the war effort during WWII by
volunteering for female branches of the military (WAAC, WASP, etc.) and serving in a number of
positions, like nursing, cryptology, and communications. In addition, women worked in defense
factories producing war material. They sold war bonds and led drives to collect metal, rubber,
and silk.
What circumstances contributed to this event:
During WWII all parts of American society contributed to the war effort.
How this event is historically significant:
Women had stepped up to take menâ??s places at home in other wars, WWII presented
unprecedented opportunities for American women and gave them the chance to show that
their capabilities. Although women were encouraged (and sometimes forced) to leave their
positions when the war ended, the experiences that they gained during the war opened the
door to women moving into the workplace and into traditionally male professions in the 1950s
and 1960s.
Event 3: 1945 to the present
Name of the event: Baby Boom
When it took place:
Immediately after WWII, from 1946 to 1964.
Where in the US:
It happened throughout the United States. However, the Baby Boom was a major factor in the
spread of the suburbs.
Who was involved:
The Baby Boom was immediately affected adults of childbearing age. However, the major
increase in the number of new families put a strain on American infrastructure, leading to
housing shortages and over-crowded schools, which meant that many communities all over the
nation expanded, building new homes and schools. However, this building boom was focused
mostly in the suburbs, so the rural and urban communities often lost population to the suburbs.
What circumstances contributed to this event:
Many Americans put off marrying and having children during the Great Depression and World
War II so when the war ended, there was a rush to start families. In addition, the post-war
economy created a significant increase in the middle class, so more Americans could support
larger families and more Americans began to marry at earlier ages to have more children
throughout their lives.
How is this event historically significant:
During the Great Depression and World War II, Americans often put off getting married and
having children but a huge increase in the number of marriages as well as the number of
children born. The average age of marriage for both men and women dropped while the
average number of children increased.
While this increase was caused in part by Americans waiting for better times to start families, it
was also caused by the improved economy of the post-war period, which increased the size of
the American middle class significantly, so Americans could support larger families. The sudden
increase in the number of new families and children put a significant strain on American
infrastructure, resulting in housing shortages and severely over-crowded schools. Many of
these families, at least the white families, moved to the rapidly expanding suburbs, where they
found bigger houses and yards, plentiful parks, and new schools. Non-white families were
generally excluded from suburban life by housing covenants, which restricted the owners from
selling to non-white families and so non-white families were often left with little choice but to
remain in urban or rural areas, with older and smaller housing and fewer amenities and older
schools.
After the war ended, there was An additional historical significance of the Baby Boom is that it
created a huge generation that affected the economy and politics throughout their lives.
Products have been designed and marketed specifically to them. Political movements
addressed their concerns to the exclusion of the concerns of other generations. Social norms
changed to better reflect the views of this generation.
Event 4: 1945 to the present
Name of the Event: FDA approval of the birth control pill
When it took place:
June 23, 1960
Where in the US:
FDA approval of the birth control pill affected women throughout the United States.
Who was involved:
The development and approval of the birth control pill was culmination of fifty years of work by
Margaret Sanger to get reliable birth control and reproductive information in the hands of
American women. She was aided in this effort by Katharine McCormick, who provides much of
the funding for research and by Dr. Gregory Pincus, the biologist who actually developed the
pill.
What circumstances contributed to this event:
Before the availability of the birth control pill, women had no reliable way of preventing
pregnancy that they controlled; previous reliable methods (like condoms) relied on men to
implement them, which left women unable to control the size their families or the birth of their
children. Especially before World War II, many women died as a result of childbirth, either due
to complications of pregnancy or due to having too many children too closely spaced. In
addition, women struggled to care for large numbers of children so closely spaced together and
for poor women, each additional child meant less food and attention for all of them. In
addition, the inability to control family size and spacing limited educational and professional
opportunities for women.
How this event was historically significant:
Although medical knowledge and technological improvements had improved obstetrical and
gynecological care for women, which lowered the mortality rate associated with childbirth by
the 1960s, the availability of the birth control pill gave women (and families) the ability to plan
their families more effectively. This allowed women greater access to education and
professional opportunities.
