Cady Stanton's Argument Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
Throughout history men have oppressed women taking away their rights and being treated as second class citizens.In 1848,at the Senca fallls convention the Declartion of sentiments was signed to gain equal .The Author Cady Stanton based the Declartion of sentiments on the Declartion of Independance and through the use of anaphora she conveys the idea that womenhave been oppresed and should have the same rights as any other citizen. Throughout the text Stanton uses anaphora to great extent to demonstrate the way women have been treated as second class citizens.There are many examples of this in the text,but one that shows that women had no voice is:”He has compelled here to submit to laws, in the formation of which she has had no voice.”
