They also believed that many rights, such as reproductive rights, equal opportunity in work, and educational rights, were denied women through the patriarchy, and as a consequence, much of women’s autonomy was sacrificed.

As a result, industrialization and its ideology lowered women’s status and diminished their paid opportunities (Lerner, 1977). According to Lerner (1977), industrialization yielded one positive outcome for women. Because of the demands and needs of industrial society, some women were able to overcome the educational discrimination that had kept them subordinate. When they faced obstacles to entering into professions, these women organized separate female institutions. In the process, a “new woman” evolved who became economically independent: a well-educated professional whose feminist consciousness found expression in the demands for rights and the organization of female pressure groups.

Formal education was not seen as necessary for girls to fulfill their life roles, and often education was perceived as competition with traditional roles. Scheduling of education, job training, and work developed to fit the male life cycle (Lerner, 1977). Leisure could also be added to that list.
