Which groups of French society benefited from the revolution?

As we know that France was divided into three estates, among them

was the third estate which was benefited.

1. The third estate primarily included non-privileged people but included peasants, artisans, workers, landless laborers, businessmen, court officials, lawyers, etc.

After the revolution, this group of people also known as the New Middle Class were enjoying equal status with the upper classes.

2. The first and the second estate were forced to relinquish their powers by giving up the privileges and executive powers.

3. The poor section of the society including the women were highly disappointed with the outcome of the revolution.
