Women were first permitted to perform on the English stage in the early 1660s, after the Restoration of King Charles II.  By the end of the seventeenth century, women players were much in demand, both on the stage and as subjects of painted portraits and prints. These helped to enhance the fame of early actresses such as Nell Gwyn and Moll Davis.
