    I had the Spanish paper as well how did you find it?
    I think it went really well I think the only thing I may have messed up a bit was the grammar section as I didn't read the sentences properly haha. I wasn't too worried about it though as I already have a high B, it was just because I was something like 2 marks off an A and we all know how frustrating that can be haha. How did you find it? Which essay did you pick?

    Also, good luck with your exams!

    Is that stuff like what women were employed in during the war and stuff like with the typewriter being introduced in 1880s and telephones being more widely used womens were employed in secretarial work. And how by 1914 the post office was the largest employer of women?

    I'd say it encompasses: trade unions; technological advances (typewriters etc); work in WW1 i.e munitions, dilution, substitution and equal pay; work after WW1; government action in 1919 (sex disqualification act and unemployment benefit); work in 1920s where they were predominantly employed in domestic devices and married women were discriminated against

    when talking about job opputuntiies for women would there be 2 seperate points for the employment of working class and the employment of middle/upper class? or can you put them both under 1 point.

    I'd probably put it under one point, but make sure to note that for example the technological advances appealed to middle-class women due to it providing a secretarial role rather than a manual one

    Nature- e.g is a letter, report, newsletter etc
    Origin- e.g what time period was it written and why is that significant
    Purpose- what is the source trying to do e.g convince government to change a law
    Audience- who is the source addressed to, or who would normally read the source
    Language- what is the sort of language is being used and why is that significant

    You have to try to link the provenance within each of your paragraphs, they do not want to see a separate paragraph just on provenance

    Good Luck!

    Many unions believed that employing women threatened pay and status of male workers. Consequently, they only agreed to the employment of wine if skilled jobs were 'diluted'. This meant that a single skilled job would be broken down and simplified so that it could be performed by several unskilled female workers. In this sense, women would be employed in lower status and lower paid jobs than they men they replaced

    'do you agree with the view that the introduction of new technology in the years 1860-1914 imrpoved the opportunities and status of women in the workplace?
