Men took charge of women, and if women did earn any money their husband would take it away from them. Women did not have any rights, and nothing was done to change that for a long time.

Both political and cultural events during these centuries increased attention to women 's issues such as education reform, and by the end of the eighteenth century, women were increasingly able to speak out against inequity.
