8. (10 points). What is the significance of this primary source? In your answer, thoroughly discuss what the source reveals about women in the time period (and do not attempt to make connections between the document and the present). Draw from your document, TWE, and the Kerber essay in WA. Be sure to provide citations that identify specific pages of the specifics texts for your information. Regarding significance, consider the larger question of the impact of the Revolution on women’s lives. For example, some historians argue that the Revolution led to an improvement of women’s status and opportunities, while other historians (such as Kerber) claim that relative to men, women’s status and opportunities declined. Does your document show that the American Revolution increased or decreased opportunities for American women? Did the American Revolution expand or constrict the roles of American women? Did the American Revolution improve or decrease the status of American women?
