Get right to the point, here:

1. Have women always been accepted at Hogwarts, or has this been recently established? If so, when was it established?

2. Assuming servants are of the lower-class variety, would that also make the higher-ups of the servant world still lower-class, or more middle-class?

3. What are some good examples of middle-class occupations that women can hold (if any)?

4. I randomly thought this up, and not saying it has anything to do with my character (or future ones), but just wanted to know: how do you feel about gypsy types?

I may have missed something somewhere, so forgive me if I did. My Victorian history isn't so great, and I haven't had a lot of time to read everything on the site just yet. I'm working on that.

1. I believe we've been playing it that they've always been accepted at Hogwarts. It would make sense that they would have been since two of the Founders were female.

2. Most if not all servants would be lower class. If any were middle class, it would be servants who were in charge of other servants such has the head of a large household.

3. Hogwarts professors; shop owners, managers, or some employees; secretaries; assistants ... etc. If your character is sort of stern and practical, I actually have a want ad up for a manager for Rosa Lee Teabag. </shameless plug>

4. We actually had a half gypsy woman at one point.

EDIT: Haha Emily posted faster than me. xD

If you need more explanation for these, please let me know. ^^

Since the books don't say otherwise, we can assume that women have always been accepted at Hogwarts. We play it out as if it has always been so, although them playing quidditch is definitely frowned upon but not impossible for them to do.

We have all servants be in the lower class group. At Charming, we just have upper, middle and lower class for sake of the user groups. There aren't any middle-lower classes or upper-middle classes, for example.

QUOTE
3. What are some good examples of middle-class occupations that women can hold (if any)?
My character here is Violet Ollivander, she is the librarian at Hogwarts. She wasn't able to find a husband and has decided she's going to be a spinster. Other occupations could be working at a shop on High Street (some of the nicer places, like the clothing stores), at the Ministry it could be being someone's secretary or a welcome witch (same as at the Hospital), a healer at the hospital, a governess or private tutor, and then there are open positions for Hogwarts professors as well.

Could you be a little more specific about what you mean by a "gypsy type"? We've had a gypsy here before, though I'm not sure what exactly you're thinking of.

Gypsies I mean as in the style of clothing, the lifestyle, etc. Naturally, they would be of lower-class, and I wonder if they are looked upon in the wizarding world as they would be in the muggle world (frowned upon, looked at in disgust, etc.)?

I would think so. The values between the muggle world and the wizarding world are generally the same on most subjects.
