It is obvious that the roles of women have changed through the ages, our mentalities as well as our rights and freedoms, as a gender have grown in every aspect possible. Before women were oppressed, thought of as only child bearers, property, and homemakers. The only duties women were responsible for were cooking, cleaning, maintaining the home and keeping their husband happy. It was the norm for women to marry into wealth as well, as a matter of fact, it was expected. If a woman was to even marry into poverty it was considered shameful on most accounts. Women used to be encouraged to marry within their own social status or above because then they knew they will be well provided for, even if it meant there was no love, a woman was just chosen to be the mother of a man’s children and to take care of the house.
