Questions refer to the documents below. Document A. Italian Migration to the Americas Although Argentina and the United States were the two primary countries of Italian immigration in the Americas between 1880 and 1914, the flows of Italian migrants to their shores differed over time. It was Brazil and Argentina that initially were the primary targets of Italian migrants, with the United States running a poor third. In the 1870s, and through most of the 1880s, Argentina was the primary zone of reception. By the late 1880s, with the abolition of slavery and the massive shift to subsidized Italian workers in the expanding coffee fields of Sao Paulo, Brazil temporarily emerged as the primary immigration zone despite the steady increase in Italian migration to both the United States and Argentina. Herbert S. Klein, "The Integration of Italian Immigrants into the United States and Argentina," American Historical Review, 1983 Document B. Estimate of Annual Italian Migration to the Americas, 1876-1914 img Source: Istituto Centrale di Statistica, Bolettino mensile de Statistica (Gennaio, 1975), Anno 5, n. 1, Appendix 2: "Espatriati e Rimpatriati, anni 1876-1973" (pp. 254-55) -According to Document A, what encouraged the large-scale Italian migration at the turn of the twentieth century?

Questions refer to the passage below. Lecture on Industrialization and Women's Freedom in Egypt, Cairo, 1909 "Men say when we become educated we shall push them out of work and abandon the role for which God created us. But isn't it rather men who have pushed women out of work? Before, women used to spin and to weave cloth for clothes for themselves and their children, but men invented machines for spinning and weaving and put women out of work. . . . Since male inventors and workers have taken away a lot of our work should we waste our time in idleness or seek other work to occupy us? Of course, we should do the latter. . . . Obviously, I am not urging women to neglect their home and children to go out and become lawyers or judges or railway engineers. But if any of us wish to work in such professions our personal freedom should not be infringed." Bahithat al-Badiya, an educated, upper-class Egyptian woman, speaking to a female audience -This speech takes place in which of the following larger movements or historical contexts?
