i might be wrong but i believe that they would be used as like slaves for the men (the women) and things were harsh for them
a result of the free exercise clause is "amish children do not have to attend school past the eight grade".
the free exercise clause stated that amish children were no longer required to attend school past eight grade. the first exercise clause is part of the establishment clause of the first amendment to the united states constitution.
when the state of wisconsin enacted a compulsory school attendance law that expressed that all children had to attend school until they were 16, the amish community decided to stand up for their rights, which had been contemplated in the free exercise clause. the amish parents argued that forcing their children to attend school past eight grade would interfere with the children's religious education and the amish way of life. this was known as the wisconsin v. jonas yoder case and the u.s ended up ruling in favor of yoder.
