Really? How so? I believe the contrary is more true, ie industrialization and mechanization have been empowering for women.
In terms of "crafts", prior to industrialization, men did the heavy lifting: pushing the plow, cutting the wood, bringing home the buffalo, building the house, etc. Industrialization has significantly marginalized that role, has it not? Now women can cut wood with power tools and buy food at the supermarket. Their capacity to successfully complete such analogous goals has become almost completely on par with a man's...
Prior to industrialization, women cooked, cleaned, sewed, helped out with less physically demanding chores around the house, etc. Women still do this. It's not their role anymore, but that role never gave them power in the first place. Now women/people have new mechanization at their disposal to take care of these jobs, so women/people can take on new more powerful positions.
Industrialization actually helped to empower women, as it created more employment opportunities for women, allowing them to start joining the workforce to a much larger degree. Mechanization decreased the need for a female to spend so much time keeping house, which in turn made it even more possible for women to join the workforce and acquire new positions of power that had never before been realized. Industrialization essentially allowed for the first wave of feminism altogether, and mechanization allowed for the second. How can you say industrialization/mechanization has decreased a woman's power?
