Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions

Elizabeth Cady Stanton said this during the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848: “The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman…” She then went on to list several areas where women were not treated fairly. In modern times, we have overcome many of these issues. Currently, women can run for office, have women representatives in the government, earn wages, and own property. Women today can also stand up to their husbands, have a fair divorce, and obtain an education. Even though our country has made many advances, women are still not equal to men. Women lose job promotions and elections just because of their gender. They also cannot be prominent church figures in some religions, and they are still thought of as inferiors by some men.
