• How mainly did reformers in the Victorian Era speak out for social reform, according to the passage below (paragraphs 24-25)? Equally determined Victorian voices spoke out on behalf of the poor and helpless. Carlyle, for example, passionately exposed the underlying flaws in Victorian society, warning of Britain’s moral, as well as literal, starvation. His writings inspired many writers and reformers, including Karl Marx and the novelist Charles Dickens. Doctors, ministers, journalists, and private philanthropists organized many charitable organizations, including the Ladies’ Society for the Education and Employment of the Female Poor, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). Reformers within Parliament used Blue Book reports to educate the well-to-do middle class about the poor. Reports on, for example, child labor in coal mines, were widely read, leading to reform laws. Question 26 options: A) By appealing to the Queen to commission organizations to help with these problems. B) By the establishment of issue-specific groups to address distinct problems through direct action and lobbying of elected officials C) By boycotting companies and institutions that did not show concern for social welfare. D) By establishing prayer groups which invited people suffering from these ills to come into their ranks.
