this is the question i have to answer: European women's social, political, and economic lives changed from the French Revolution to the Second World War. Did they experience an overall improvement or decline? Choose groups and time periods of some significance to show how their lives were transformed. You might want to choose from among the aristocracy, bourgeoisie/middle class, peasants, and workers; Eastern, Central, or Western Europe; the French and Russian Revolutions; or any other angle. For a particularly complex argument, you might also want to explain what you see as the major reason for the changes women experienced.
