Gender in Private & Public Life in the 19th Century

I read an interesting article on the V&A website on politics and gender equality during the 19th Century (the period leading up to when my chosen object was made and defaced).

I was shocked to find the article state that in 1880, 23 years earlier, only men could freely go to bars, music halls and take part in most outdoor sports! Although during the 19th century laws had been passed in favour of women’s rights and removing gender injustices, this was a slow development in gender equality, which was (widely accepted as) a part of British Life.

Votes for Women was not a new demand in the 20th century, but one that had been expressed for over 50years! It was just that it now became a focus in the gender equality battle.
