  3. On #5, since Ms. Sue and I disagree, I note it's hard to say which social trend was the most important factor. Go with what your text materials identify as the most important. I tend to agree with you because men did tend to take over leadership in the social reform movements that came out of the Second Great Awakening, thinking women were unqualified to lead anything.
