During the late 1800s, 95% of married women stayed at home, as careers and marriage were not allowed to mix. With the industrial revolution, women (unmarried and young) were needed for jobs especially in textile business. Women who worked in factories were paid less and only were assigned to clean or process and package paper. A new phrase of the time: "cult of domesticity," meant in a changing world (industrialization of America), their role was consider one of certainty, in contrast with others. Women were stereotypically more "suited" for the quiet life at home. In the late 1800s, more importance was put on education and a shift in gender of occupation occurred due to rapidly evolving and growing America. Teachers were needed and it was thought that women were well suited for occupation as social and historically trained to deal with children and educate. Before the early 19th century, there was no requirements in order to teach (other than being of male gender). Therefore, more educated men took jobs in higher ranked occupations, like law, and incompetent school masters were hired without any type of credentials. With the industrial revolution women were deemed adequate with the ability to teach and with the new job opportunity, women proved their legitimacy to work outside the home.
