1. The author believes that the two most important habits to teach children is that of industry and regular application to business. The author believes that these habits can be even more important than the childs schooling and he believes it can help the growth of urban America since these habits are what ultimately will lead America towards industrialization when the children become adults and leaders. 2. The author of this article believes that some useful skills that should be instilled in boys while they are growing up are habits of donating to institutions of benevolence and to make sure that what they donate is something that actually affects them, not solely the money they have left over. The author also believes that children should be taught the value of money and how to properly handle their money as well as reinforcing the idea that being idle is bad and time should not be wasted. On the other hand, the author uses just 3 small paragraphs to explain the duties that should be taught to daughters and that is because he believes that the only important things that a woman should know is how to take care of her household, which is a perfect example of the ideas of republican motherhood. PHD 11-6 1. According to Harriet Robinson, the primary reason why women worked in the mills was to provide some extra money which could be used to give their son or brother and education and therefore a profession. She goes on to state that some women even gave an education, through their salary at the mill, to men whom were not even a relative of theirs. 2. Robinson describes the life of a mill girl as having extremely long hours, as much as over 14 hours a day, and some, who had homes, would work from 8 to 10 months of the year and spend the rest of the year either teaching or doing something else away from the factory, Robinson states how they had a much better time in the factories than the average mill worker. Robinson also believes that the strike was a failure since their demands were not meant but it was the first time that a woman spoke in public in Lowell and this could have set precedents for the future strikes. PHD 11-8 1. In this excerpt, Emerson suggests that the most important thing that we should conserve is our individuality and sovereignty. Emerson believes that rather than follow an objective doctrine, we should follow a subjective set of rules that we hold within ourselves. Emerson believes that we should only pay attention to what concerns us rather than what others may think and therefore believes that not all social norms should actually be followed if we believe otherwise. 2. Emerson proposes various ideas that could be considered very unorthodox. Above all, Emerson believes that one should not follow the holy doctrine since you have a doctrine within yourself and that is the one that you should follow. Emerson also believes that one should not follow the hive mind and donate to every charity they see and rather, they should donate to the people that they believe they owe the right to give money to, rather than to people that do not concern them.

1. Lucretia Mott attempts to persuade men that women should have equal rights to that of men by listing all the rights that she believes women should have, which are the same that men have. She constantly mentions our creator and states that he made men and women equal but women have been suppressed for a long time and they should now be allowed rights. Mott also writes these resolutions similar to how men wrote the declaration of independence which creates a parallel to how now, rather than men fighting for rights, it is women. 2. I think that slaves gained emancipation before women gained rights since, at the time, slavery was a more pressing issue than womens rights. While a women being suppressed to be in the household and raising their children was a social norm and wasnt frowned upon, the subject of slavery was becoming frowned upon especially when more and more strict religion followers started believing that slavery was wrong; religion, however, did not directly speak out against woman suppression. Slavery was also a more pressing issue since the South and the North both had opposing views while the nation had the same view as a whole on womens rights. PHD 11-13 1. Gage describes the audiences response before and after her speech. When she is going up to speak people are insulting her and screaming so that they do not let her speak since she is black and a woman. Gages description of the audience throughout and after her speech however could not be more different since he vividly describes the audiences cheers, applause, screams, and tears because of her words. Gage is extremely enthusiastic about Truths words and appears to have been greatly moved by her words. 2. Truths message is basically that women should have equal rights to that of men and that women have played a role just as important as that of men throughout the history of the Earth, starting with the birth of Jesus. She brings up the main points which the crowd probably expected from her such as women deserve equal rights but she also brings up some unexpected arguments such as Jesus coming from a woman and how men say that a woman always gets treated best but she has had to work extremely hard and has never truly received this treatment that men speak of. PHD 14-1 1. Garrison seems disheartened by the public sentiment for slavery in America. He states how the sentiment of people in free states is even more despicable than that of slave-owners themselves since it seems that at the moment, most people are either apathetic towards slavery or prefer a gradual emancipation of slaves. 2. Garrison uses comparisons to justify his stand on slavery and his aggressive language by stating how you would not tell a man in a burning house to be moderate in his actions so you should not ask Garrison to be moderate in his. Garrison uses the same point of urgency to reinforce his point of immediate abolition of slavery since an emergency such as this must be solves as soon as possible.
