Late evening hangouts or visiting different places for enjoyment was not appreciated by the past men. In most offices, there was a glass ceiling for the women and they were stopped from having advancement in education. With the help of this article, the challenges and oppositions faced by the women in the late 19th century will be brought forward along with how they were put into slavery since the beginning of their lives and were treated as animals, females of poor families were sexually harassed, and many strong women tried their best to spread awareness on this injustice. People of the 21st century do not know much about the details of how the women were denied from their legal rights and such, through this study they will get examine the harsh reality of the past.
