D. even though in 1975 there were about one-third of mothers with young children who worked outside the home, almost two-thirds of such mothers were employed outside the home in 2000 E. with about one-third of mothers with young children working out- side the home in 1975, almost two-thirds of such mothers were employed outside the home in 2000 answer: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q25-27 In colonial Connecticut between 1670 and 1719, women participated in one of every six civil cases, the Line vast majority of which were debt- (5) related. Women’s participation dropped to one in ten cases after 1719, and to one in twenty by the 1770’s. however, as Cornelia Hughes Dayton notes in Women (10) Before the Bar: Gender, Law, and Society in Connecticut, 1639-1789, these statistics are somewhat deceptive: in fact, both the absolute numbers and (15) the percentage of adult women participating in civil cases grew steadily throughout the eighteenth century, but the legal activity of men also increased dramatically, (20) and at a much faster rate. Single, married, and widowed women continued to pursue their own and their husbands’ debtors through legal action much as they had (25) done in the previous century, but despite this continuity, their place in the legal system shifted dramatically. Men’s commercial interests and credit networks (30) became increasingly far-flung, owing in part to the ability of creditors to buy and sell prom- issory notes (legal promises to pay debts). At the same time, (35) women’s networks of credit and

debt remained primarily local and personal. Dayton contends that, although still performing crucial economic services in their (40) communities—services that contributed to the commercialization of the colonial economy—women remained for the most part outside the new economic and legal culture of the eighteenth century. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q25 The passage is primarily concerned with A. reporting an author’s view of a phenomenon B. disputing the reasons usually given for an unexpected change C. evaluating the conclusions reached by an author D. assessing the impact of certain legal decisions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
