All For One And One For All

Why are men and women still treated unequally? Why was sexism such a great problem in the past and continues to be to today? Why are men able to control the lives of women and take their voices away? Why? Women are like men, whether men want to admit it or not. Some men do not feel superior to women, but there is an innumerable amount that do feel the need to dominate. Where this need to dominate and be superior, probably comes from just being who they are: men. They cannot help themselves, and they think of themselves as better than women, smarter than women, more influential than women.

However, that one word can clear up a huge controversy over what a document is intended to pronounce.
The Declaration of Independence was a document that presented all the "abuses and usurpations" Great Britain had inflicted upon the colonies (Jefferson et al. par. 2). Almost the same argument was presented by Stanton's work, but the biggest difference was this: the victim and the abuser. In the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions, women were the sole victim, and men were the abusers....
