Appunto di angela1502
We can say that, during the Victorian period (that lasted from 1837 to 1901), the traditional roles of women as wives, mothers and daughters began to be discussed and, towards the end of the century, gradually changed. Indeed, Queen Victoria, believing in education for her sex, gave support and encouragement to the founding of a college for women in 1847, but she opposed the movement to give women the right to vote because she believed that woman’s role was to be submitted to men.
