    The way women increased their rights was through legislation, such as passing the Married Women’s Property Act, which allowed married women to act legally as independent agents: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/366305/Married-Womens-Property-Acts

    In England, women rallied for the right to see their children: Parliament passed the Infant Custody Bill in 1839, “allowing mothers to appeal for custody of children under seven, and access to children under sixteen.” http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/norton/nc-biography.html#section4

    The Matrimonial Causes Act of 1857 finally enabled couples to obtain a divorce through civil proceedings.A husband had to prove his wife had been adulterous, but a wife had to prove her husband had committed adultery, as well as cruelty, or had deserted her, or had committed incest or bigamy: BBC – Family History Research: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/familyhistory/bloodlines/familysecrets.shtml?entry=matrimonial_causes_act&theme=familysecrets
