How did the events of the Tennis Court Oath increase the prestige of the Third Estate? by showing that the people's will could overpower that of the monarch by allowing people from the lower classes to participate in leisure activities by overthrowing the monarch and causing the execution of many courtiers by easing France's financial crisis and ending starvation among the people
Weegy: The Tennis Court Oath was a result of the growing discontent of the Third Estate in France in the face of King Louis XVI's desire to hold onto the country's history of absolute government. [ The deputies of the Third Estate were coming together for a meeting to discuss the reforms proposed by Necker, the Prime Minister.

Many academic institutions in society considered a woman's role to lie outside science. Her husband Gottfried had a negative reputation in the scientific community. No women were allowed to use scientific equipment during this era.
Weegy: he made comments suggesting the lower numbers of women in high-level science positions may in part be due to innate differences in abilities or preferences between men and women. [ This frustrated many conference goers who felt that these issues, or at least his presentation of them, had been thoroughly refuted during the conference, and that moreover such statements were irresponsible coming from a university president. The resulting controversy was a factor in his later resignation ] (More)
