The city of London encouraged a new spirit of individualism among both men and women and a freedom from the collective values that were a feature of the smaller rural communities.
Both men and women did not have equal access to this new urban space.
As women lost their industrial jobs, conservative people spoke against their presence in public spaces, women were forced to withdraw into their houses.
The public space became increasingly a male preserve and home was seen as the proper place for women.
So this theory of individualism promoted liberty, rights or independent action of the individual, rather than of the community or the family.
