The tensions get so bad that all the female students are expelled for one two months, much to Dr. Bell's fury.
** Women in general are treated as second class citizens, prostitutes are seen as inhuman and any wife who accuses her husband of being unfaithful can have the accusation turned on them and thrown into an asylum.
