8th History DBQ - Pls check my answer, thx!!!

Document 7: W. E. B. Du Bois publicly embraced the cause of woman suffrage after he moved north in 1907.

The signs of awakening womanhood in the world to-day are legion. The best novelists are women. Some of the keenest essayists and graceful writers of verse are women. Women are among the greatest leaders of Social Reforms. Of course there are fools a plenty to tell them they don't need the ballot and to feed them the ancient taffy about homes and babies.

Q11. Du Bois claimed “Of course there are fools a plenty to tell them they don't need the ballot and to feed them the ancient taffy about homes and babies.” What does Du Bois mean by “ancient taffy about home and babies”?

My Answer: It means the women are belonging to a traditional style like the time long ago; they should be a staying home who focus on the housework and take care of their babies.

  1. In this sentence, "taffy" must mean myth or nonsense.

  2. Thank you Ms.Sue. I correct my answer and do you mind to check it again for me. Thanks again :)

    Answer: It means the women are belonging to a traditional style like the time long ago, which they should be a staying home to focus on the housework and take care of their babies. But in fact this is a myth, it’s an idea that many people believe should be like that, but which is not true.
