Owen was a socialist, who created a Utopian Society for his workers because he felt that the workers negative behaviors reflected from their poor surrounding environments. Flora Tristan was a French socialist writer and feminist who argued that the unfair treatment of women lead to the corrupt treatment of the condition of workers, because women influenced the function of a household. Socialist thinkers Owen author of A New View of Society and Tristan author of “Workers Your Condition… is Miserable and Distressing,” observed the poor conditions of industrialization during the 19th century and determined theories explained by the social question. The solutions proposed were focused on the family unit’s impact on workers, each thinker’s plan of action intended to address the social question, and how these theories were thought to improve the quality of life through agency in their documents. Owen and Tristan argued that the poor working class family unit’s dysfunctionality impacted adults, which later affected their children.
