3. I'm sure that's closer to the reason

Once upon a time the only "respectable" way for a Catholic girl to avoid marriage was to enter the convent. Or, if she wanted an education, some of orders were very big on educating their members & that were practically the only way a young woman could get an advanced education, though usually as a teacher or a nurse.

Thankfully, we all have more options now.
