The Great depression was a time of mixed emotions all around the world. There were four main points that were truly affected by the depression. These affected all people in many ways. Most importantly, home life. This mainly affected women. Some women were married with many kids, but did not have the money to support the kids when the crash came. The kids were uncontrollable when they became hungry. Also, some women had husbands that worked, long days. So, the women were on their own taking care of these kids. Sometimes, when the women couldn’t take the children anymore, they would put them up for sale. This would give them money and less stress in raising the kids. The Leisure time, of mainly, women, also had a huge impact during the depression. Leisure time consisted of: drinking, bars, cinemas, daes, jazz, dancing, flappers, etc. Some women used this to take a break away from their home life and “ distract the hard times “. Women rebelled by wearing short dresses and bob hair cuts and called themselves flappers. Other women, although, would go to cinema to watch films. Leisure time really got people's minds off things during the Great Depression. The economy was most affected. Stock Markets were a big thing during the depression. Stock markets allowed you to buy and sell. People used stocks a lot, and kept a lot of money in them. Stock brokers usually chose to invest in stock markets. So, when the stock market crashed, everyone's money went everywhere. Nobody who longer had a stock, still had it. Business owners had a surplus of products and no one to have them buy the products because they had no money. The economy acted in this as hard as they could but knew there wasn't much they could do. This is what lead to the depression, and the start of everything. The Role of Government also played huge role in this crash. At first they had a Laissez Faire policy, they were not getting involved, they had a hands off approach. But when people's money got lost and all else was failing, they knew they had to step in. Although, it was still limited involvement. People had to go and fend for themselves because the government would not give them advice on what to do. This affected bankers greatly, they had no idea what to do since they hadn't experienced something this bad before. Nor were they prepared for it. The government was the most powerful thing that the people had and without their help they felt powerless. People had been through so much distress and sorrow through this time. Their everyday life was simply destroyed. Everyone felt hopeless and these were the main reasons why.
