The fields of antebellum (pre-Civil War) political history and women’s history use separate sources

and focus on separate issues. Political historians, examining sources such as voting records, newspapers, and politicians’ writings, focus on the emergence in the 1840’s of a new “American political nation,” and since women were neither voters nor politicians, they receive little discussion. Women’s historians, meanwhile, have shown little interest in the subject of party politics, instead drawing on personal papers, legal records such as wills, and records of female associations to illuminate women’s domestic lives, their moral reform activities, and the emergence of the woman’s rights movement.

However, most historians have underestimated the extent and significance of women’s political allegiance in the antebellum period. For example, in the presidential election campaigns of the 1840’s, the Virginia Whig party strove to win the allegiance of Virginia’s women by inviting them to rallies and speeches. According to Whig propaganda, women who turned out at the party’s rallies gathered information that enabled them to mold party-loyal families, reminded men of moral values that transcended party loyalty, and conferred moral standing on the party. Virginia Democrats, in response, began to make similar appeals to women as well. By the mid-1850’s the inclusion of women in the rituals of party politics had become commonplace and the ideology that justified such inclusion had been assimilated by the Democrats.

According to the second paragraph of the passage, Whig propaganda

included the assertion that



    A. women should enjoy more political rights than they did

    B. women  were the most important influences on political attitudes within a family

    C. women’s reform activities reminded men of important moral values

    D. women’s demonstrations at rallies would influence men’s voting behavior

    E. women’s presence at rallies would enhance the moral standing of the party

:正确答案为(E)。根据题干关键词whig propaganda在第二段定位。原文通过gathered, reminded, and conferred的平行并列结构说明了出席whig党集会的女性可以为whig带来什么,而(E)项正是conferred部分的同义改写。 (A):原文没有提到女性应该享有更多政治权利。 (B):根据原文无法推断出女性是家庭中对政治态度最重要的影响。 (C):女性改革运动只在第一段中提到,这里应该是女性参与政党的集会和演讲提醒了男性重要的道德价值。 (D):原文只说女性会提醒男性有关的态度,并不涉及行为改变。
