The only job that women were allowed to do was to help their husbands in their farms. But that all had changed when the United States went into wars and men had to go fight for the country.

Lasting Effects of the Women's Suffrage Movement A century ago, the United States was a very different place, especially for women. They did not have the same rights as men. For example, they were excluded from inheriting property on the same terms as men, serving on a jury, opening a bank account, applying for a loan, attending Ivy League colleges, and also had a limited voice in their government because they were not allowed to vote. Ironically, the constitution did not explicitly deny women the right to vote, but since they were not allowed to do so many other things, it made sense that voting was restricted as well. Women’s decade-long struggle to earn the right to vote, otherwise known as the Women's Suffrage movement, came to an end with
Today, we live in a society that believes women can do anything men can do. Women can vote, work, and were granted all the same rights and freedoms as men. But, our society was not always this way.

The late Victorian era was an oppressing time for women as they had much fewer rights than men. Their upbringing, way of dress and expectation to be submissive and domestic made their options limited for being able to make more of themselves than a housewife. Because of the Arts and Crafts movement, women who would spend their lives as shopkeepers or scullery maids were able to become artists, poets and creators. Examples of this include women within the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood such as Elizabeth “Lizzie” Siddal and Jane Morris who paved the way for other female artists to succeed after them. In addition to this point, much of this could not have been done without the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood who, despite their title, were very supportive and inclusive to female artists.
