Satisfactory Essays

The Declaration of Rights of Women was a speech in which the National Woman Suffrage Association declared their freedom on July 4th, 1876 because they have no voice or representation in government. Anthony, like Stanton spoke about the “many forms of flagrant discrimination” women faced politically tries to their argument around 1776. Anthony talks about “the broad principles of human rights proclaimed in 1776, not only as abstract truths but as the corner stones of the republic” that these rights aren’t only for half of the population, but these natural rights are given to everyone, regardless of gender. Lastly, Anthony believes that disregarding these rights will only set a bad precedent for the future of the republic, setting its own demise.
