tell about the women during that time

The women during this time followed a specific role. They were submissive to their husbands, they raised children and they were locked into very specific gender roles. Miss Love is rather independent and initially sees the union as little more than pragmatically beneficial. This in itself was unheard of. Aunt Carrie is considered crazy although eccentric is a better word. In fact, considering the social stagnation in this little town, Aunt Carrie's ideas seem almost enlightened.
