Thank you very much. So the sentence should be:
1) Briefly outline the main values on which Victorian society was based. Then explain the role of women and the Victorian view of the family.
What about this?
2) Then explain the role of women and the middle class ideal of Victorian family life.
(I want to express this: Middle class ideals dominated Victorian family life. The family was a patriarchal unit ....)
