Interesting conversation.  As one of the old farts on the board, I'll agree with the other old farts.

I think the best case scenario for a woman to "stand up" for herself in the 19th century was to exert influence over her husband or father if he was either a truly loving husband or father, an Ashley Wilkes like wimp or she used her sexual wiles with her husband.  If she tried to "stand up" for herself with the rest of society she would have been slapped down fast and be considered a pariah.

Now Dixie Girl, don't forget that you want to take your e-mail back with you to the 19th century too

(Oh never mind, I see now where you are taking your computer with you too)
