During the Civil War, like most wars, women had to step up and start doing jobs that were normally done by men because the men were fighting the war. Post-Civil War, some of these men came back, and they wanted their job backs. Some women stayed in the work force while others did not.

There were some factories that were built just for women, where only women worked there. Women lived in the factory quarters and weren't off too bad. They had to follow rules and they couldn't be married. However, it was a step in the direction of females in the work force.

Socially, these women started protesting for rights. Black males were given voting rights before females and they wanted voting rights too. They began to develop because they had been working on their own now. However, progress for rights was slow. Women were still not in government.
