Transcript of Gender Roles In the 1800's

Gender Roles In the 1800's What are gender roles? The End Gender roles are the stereotypes that we have that compare the average lifestyle of the men to the average lifestyle of the women. Most women did not have the privilege of getting an education. Only higher-class women would occasionally get a basic education in arithmetic, writing, and reading. An average woman's education in the 1800's In the 1800's, children were considered chattel. The father could do anything he wanted with the child. He could enjoy the fruits of his labor, abuse him, etc.,but it was his responsibility to feed him. Children were often abused, even to death sometimes. Children in the 1800's Women had barely any of the rights the men had in that time. Men were allowed to own property (including the woman and all of her inheritance), they could get an education (like most women couldn't), and they could have alot of jobs that women couldn't. It wasn't until 1839, when Mississippi granted women the right for women to own property with their husband's permission, that women were allowed to own land.

The only thing women were expected to do was to marry a man and then spend the rest of her life serving him. If she remained single, she would be ridiculed by society. When the woman would marry a man, he had rights to all of her inheritance and everything the woman had.
