Expert Answer:

Soceity in London during the 18th and 19th centuries was undergoing gradual but profound changes. During the 18th century, family functioned as both, a unit of production and consumtion as well as of political decision making. However, as industrialisation enveloped London, the function and shape families underwent a major alteration. Household ties loosened slowly and the institution of marriage suffered a breakdown among the working classes. Upper and middle class women, unlike working class women who had more control over their lives, faced increasing levels of isolation and disempowerment by orthodox elements of the society. Women who worked for their wages however, refused to be cowed down by the conservative forces and continued to lead life in an indivisualistic manner.
