    Wink plz. is it grammatically corect?

    In the eighteenth century, it is said not many women who had access to formal education in the colonies.

    In this sentence, "it is said" seems incorrect, but I don't know how it can be corrected.
    Please help me.

    it is said - --it is correct ; it means "they say that" or "people say that" [it`s impersonal ]; it tells what someone said; it is reported that...

    e.g It is said that men cannot be trusted.
    It is said that gifts persuade even the gods [Euripide]
    It is often said that there is a gap between speaking and writing.

    It is said that not many women had access to formal eduation in the colonies in the XVIIIth century.

    who - is not necessary in this sentence.
