    Question to ensue

    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if this is a correct sentence?

    The development of the Victorian domestic ideology and the related concept of “separate spheres” ensued the emergence of a new entrepreneurial and professional class in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

    I want to say that the development of... was a consequence of..., but that's rather long and I wondered if I could make it shorter with "ensue".

    Thanks a lot.
