How to use promote in a sentence?

  1. Vladimir Lenin:

    You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.

  2. Randeshwaro Palhist:

    Intelligent people are not even interested in Covid vaccines & oxygen , but hired agents are discussing furiously about its price, availability, pros & cons only to promote its sales and their posts get many likes, comment, retweets and share only from own paid people.

  3. Thomas Alan Schwartz:

    The Super Bowl is one of the secular national holidays we have that tends to promote unity, the idea being that we all like watching the game. It’s an opportunity to hit an audience that he would otherwise have a hard time finding.

  4. Patrick Jephson:

    The option of a quiet wedding was presumably open to Meghan Markles and Harry and they instead have chosen one that invites enormous publicity and indeed their office is orchestrating the publicity, so it is difficult for the watching public to switch from what is universal consumption to what is, in Harry’s words, now a ‘ private matter. ’ there is a natural and not always wise desire on the part of royal people to control everything we know about them, and this is not a healthy attitude nor is it a pragmatic one given the degree to which the media can promote their causes.

  5. Pope Francis:

    Social networks can facilitate relationships and promote the good of society, but they can also lead to further polarization and division between individuals and groups.
