Question:

What can the reader infer about the speech’s intended audience?

A The speech is written to convince people who may be moved by a logical look at the historical precedent for women’s rights.
Explaination

We do not know from this passage who Anthony is speaking to, but it’s reasonable to assume she is not addressing people who already agree or completely disagree with her, and she doesn’t make a case that charges against her should be dropped. That makes answer (C) the best choice.
