    The full question is: Do you agree with the view that women's contribution to charity and local poltics represented a significant move away from the separate spheres ideology?

    My notes are lacking information on women's contribution to charity and how it undermined victorian ideology.

    I'm aware that they visited the workhouses, orphanages and churches to help the poor, which brought about the domesticity and middle class values in their roles, but i'm finding it hard to discern what else they did.

    I'm also struggling with the political aspect of the question. Women were largely involved within the Conservative and Liberal parties via the Primrose League and the Women's Liberal Federation, which, in part, undermined the separate spheres ideology as they were moving into the public sphere rather than keeping to the domestic/private sphere. What else were they doing to undermine the spheres? I keep finding information that isn't particularly relevant to my question.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
