Few cases actually fit that pattern, but campaigns to publicize and enforce the law on that basis were implemented in at least 10 states. A more broadly adopted element of feminist rape law reform was the application of gender-neutral language: instead of referring to "females" the law referred to any "person. Like France, many other countries, increased the age of consent to 13 in the 19th century. The outcry it provoked pushed British legislators to raise the age of consent to 16 years, and stirred reformers in the U. There was one exception: a man's acts with his wife, to which rape law, and hence the age of consent, did not apply. Some apply to young men as well as young women and others remained focused on the lives and actions of girls. Their new freedom brought girls danger as well as pleasure: subordination at work and dependence on men for access to leisure, limited their agency and ability to consent, and sometimes exposed them to sexual violence. The ruling found a new, "modern" basis for the law: the consequences of pregnancy for females.
