How is the Declaration of Sentiments historically important to our country's foundation? A. It was the first abolitionist document. B.It addressed both the rights of women and African-Americans. C. It brought out the idea of women's suffrage. D. It endorsed the ideas presented in the Constitution.

History 18/01/2020 12:10 PM answersmine

The answer is C. It brought out the idea of women's suffrage.

Like other guy said, it is the most logical, but it is also a document specifically about the rights of women.

If you do a quick google search about the document and the author you will find a brief synopsis of the document (explaining that it is about the rights of women) and that the author was a suffragist.  

Another google search about the timeline you will find that the document didn't actually bring about the idea of women's suffrage. It was actually just marking the official beginning of women's suffrage, just like the Declaration of Independence. The document was signed at the first women's rights convention in America. If you search the start of women's suffrage it will say that it started in 1848, the same year that the Declaration of Sentiments was signed (There is no exact time for it obviously, but that is the main time when it was being noticed widely).


Hopefully this helps you guys understand a little more! Typically with questions like this you can easily find the answer by doing simple google searches like this.

Answer:

By wielding complete control over all aspects of the economy, dictators were able to stabilize their economies.

Explanation:

If you control every single aspect of the economy of a country, you have all the tools to artificially control economy to a certain degree. Basically, the consequences of the bad conditions of the Economy are eventually going to come back, but they can be postponed artificially and that's what was done; it did last quite enough for these factions to exerce their influence on other countries.
