The College Board Advanced Placement Examination UNITED STATES HISTORY SECTION I1 Part A (Suggested writing time-45 minutes) Percent of Section I1 score - 45 Directions: The following question requires you to construct a coherent essay that integrates your interpretation of Documents A-J & your knowledge of the period referred to in the question. High scores will be earned only by essays that both cite key pieces of evidence from the documents and draw on outside knowledge of the period. 1. To what extent did economic and political developments as well as assumptions about the nature of women affect the position of American women during the period 1890-1925 ? Use the documents and your knowledge of the history of the years 1890-1925 to construct your response. Source: Susan B. Anthony, "The Status of Women, Past, Present, and Future," Arena, May 1897. The close of this 19th century finds every trade, vocation, and profession open to women, and every oppor- tunity at their command for preparing themselves to follow these occupations. A vast amount of the household drudgery that once monopolized the whole time and strength of the mother and daughters has been taken outside and turned over to machinery in vast establishments. She who can make for herself a place of distinction in any line of work receives commendation instead of condemnation. It is especially worthy of note that along with this general advancement of women has come a marked improvement in household methods. Woman's increased intelligence manifests itself in this department as con- spicuously as in any other. Education, culture, mental discipline, business training develop far more capable mothers and housewives than were possible under the old regime.
