Weegy: Urbanization refers to the increasing number of people that live in urban areas. User: In what year was the Women’s Christian Temperance Union formed? Weegy: Temperance (Sophrosyne in Greek is defined as moderation in action, thought, or feeling; restraint.?

It is considered one of the four cardinal virtues, for it is believed that no virtue could be sustained in the face of inability to control oneself, if the virtue was opposed to some desire. It is also one of the six main categories of the VIA Character Strengths (see Major Theoretical Approaches). Temperance is generally defined by control over excess, so that it has many such classes, such as abstinence, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation, forgiveness and mercy; each of these involves restraining some impulse, such as sexual desire, vanity, or anger. ] User: Which statement describes a cultural opportunity that became available as cities grew in the late 1800s?
