Abstract: The following dissertation spots a light on social issues of women in the Victorian era. Intolerance was the main feature of victorian era. But in the middle of century flexibility was spread over victorian society. In other words, women were allowed to study and work under strict conditions and social conventions. So, we can say that Victorian's social manners ruled their life. I think it is possible to say Queen Victoria was the actress not the writer of strict rules. Meaning, Victorian's women were obey rules of God which were changed and reformed in a way or another to suit human needs. This reforming made a gap within society. In other words, classes and differences between a man and a woman were appeared. Equality was the other feature of Victorian's society. A man's and a woman's positions were unequal within Victorian society. It is also examines Josephine Butler's works, Social Purity (1879) and Truth Before Everything (1897) and the case of prostitutes also brought up to the light by Josephine Butler. Although she made her readers give attention to this danger and to fight against it because and as I understood from her works she was worried about of increase this social danger within society and how to control it. The projective of this study is to analyse literary text and give an idea about the history and appeals of human equality and social justice for communities in our time through cultural and social conflicts that occur within societies.
