All correct (except Q2) in 13 mins 30 seconds, including 5 mins 30 seconds to read
Para 1- US feminist movements, historians investigations, failed to recognize that feminism was then a truly international movement actually centered in Europe
Para 2- Saint-Simonians- feminist part of Saint-Simonianism has, however, been less studied than the group's contribution to early socialism- why this is regrettable; new world order by SS
Para 3- Only a few Saint-Simonians opposed a definition of sexual equality based on gender distinction

1. It can be inferred that the author considers those historians who describe early feminists in the United States as "solitary" to be
(A) insufficiently familiar with the international origins of nineteenth-century American feminist thought - Correct
even when historians did take into account those feminist ideas and activities occurring within the United States, they failed to recognize that feminism was then a truly international movement actually centered in Europe.

2. According to the passage, which of the following is true of the Seneca Falls conference on women's rights?
(A) It was primarily a product of nineteenth-century Saint-Simonian feminist thought. - incorrect, we do not know whether it was primarily a product of SS fem though
(B) It was the work of American activists who were independent of feminists abroad. - incorrect
(C) It was the culminating achievement of the utopian socialist movement. -
(D) it was a manifestation of an international movement for social change and feminism.
(E) It was the final manifestation of the women's rights movement in the United States in the nineteenth century. - incorrect

utopian socialism—which was already popularizing feminist ideas in Europe during the two decades that culminated in the first women's rights conference held at Seneca Falls. New York. in 1848
I was down to options C and D and chose C

3. The author's attitude toward most European historians who have studied the Saint-Simonians is primarily one of
(B) disapproval of their lack of attention to the issue that absorbed most of the Saint-Simonians' energy after 1832
The specifically feminist part of Saint-Simonianism has, however, been less studied than the group's contribution to early socialism. This is regrettable on two counts. By 1832 feminism was the central concern of Saint-Simonianism and entirely absorbed its adherents' energy; hence, by ignoring its feminism, European historians have misunderstood Saint-Simonianism.

4. The author mentions all of the following as characteristic of the Saint-Simonians EXCEPT:
(E) Most members believed that women and men were inherently similar in ability and character.
Only a few Saint-Simonians opposed a definition of sexual equality based on gender distinction. This minority believed that individuals of both sexes were born similar in capacity and character

5. It can be inferred from the passage that the Saint-Simonians envisioned a utopian society having which of the following characteristics?

(A) It would be worldwide.
The new world order would be ruled together by a male, to represent reflection, and a female, to represent sentiment.

6. It can be inferred from the passage that the author believes that study of Saint-Simonianism is necessary for historians of American feminism because such study
(A) would clarify the ideological origins of those feminist ideas that influenced American feminism
that the detailed study already made of social conditions be expanded to include the ideological development of feminism.
The specifically feminist part of Saint-Simonianism has, however, been less studied than the group's contribution to early socialism.

7. According to the passage, which of the following would be the most accurate description of the society envisioned by most Saint-Simonians?

(B) A society in which the two genders played complementary roles and had equal status
The new world order would be ruled together by a male, to represent reflection, and a female, to represent sentiment. This complementarity reflects the fact that, while the Saint-Simonians did not reject the belief that there were innate differences between men and women, they nevertheless foresaw an equally important social and political role for both sexes in their utopia.

Can you explain why not D for 7? I was in between D & B but chose D because it gives me the feeling of supporting the cause rather than the effect. I may be totally wrong. Would love to hear your explanation

Hey, D talks about the rule being solely based on the respective spiritual powers of men and women. While that maybe true to an extent as the passage says that "reorganize the globe by replacing brute force with the rule of spiritual powers" and then goes onto mention 2 what a male and a female would represent. Option D does not really cover the main point/meaning of the society that men and women should be equal.

Hope this helps! :)

Hey, Option D says " men and women would rule together on the basis of their spiritual power". There are no different spiritual power based on gender. The passage says " replacing brute force with the rule of spiritual powers". So Option D is wrong.
But the passage says "The new world order would be ruled together by a male, to represent reflection, and a female, to represent sentiment. This complementarity reflects the fact.....". So this means that there is a complementarity between the roles of men and women.
I am not an expert, Correct me if my logic is wrong.

I know this question was from a while ago, but I thought I would maybe try to add some input to help.

If you read the passage closely, it says it “culminated” with the Seneca Falls Conference.

We are not told that this is the “culminating ACHIEVEMENT.”

My work on the GMAT could culminate with the computer screen displaying a 550.

However, the “culminating achievement” from my work on the GMAT could be this post (which happens earlier).

The above was my interpretation of the question.

Also, I’m always wary of answers that seem “too close” to the words used in the passage. Usually, it’s the GMAT making the answer so close but switching one little word here or there to trip up the test taker.

Whenever the answer seems to copy the words in the passage, I pay extra close attention. Sometimes the answer might be correct, but most of the time it is GMAC toying with us.

As for D, the passage discusses this international movement involving feminism and then mentions how it culminates at the Seneca Falls Conference.

We can definitely say that the Conference was a “manifestation” (expression, effect) of this movement.
