What truths are self-evident according to the Declaration of Sentiments?

All men and women are created equal; they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights government are instituted; deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

What is Sojourner’s rationale in regards to women having equal rights despite Jesus being a man?

When Lazarus died, Mary and Martha came to him with faith and love and besought him to raise their brother. And Jesus wept and Lazarus came forth. And how came Jesus into the world? Through God who created him and the woman who bore him. Man, where was your part? But the women are coming up blessed be God and a few of the men are coming up with them. But man is in a tight place, the poor slave is on him, woman is coming on him, he is surely between a hawk and a buzzard.

What does feminism mean according to George Middleton? Expand.

Feminism means trouble: trouble means agitation: agitation means movement: movement means life: life means adjustment and readjustment: so does feminism. It is an attack upon social opinion wherever it discriminates in its attitude toward man and woman on the basis of sex. It asks primarily that man and woman be considered as human beings. It recognizes that man and woman are made of the same soul stuff. It sees them respond to the same rhythm in music, the same beauty in verse and the same elemental emotions in life.

What does Middleton state about suffrage and feminism? Why?

“Woman suffrage is the political aspect of feminism. It is the kindergarten of feminism. Many people who believe in woman suffrage do not believe in all of the aspects of feminism. But all feminists are equal suffragists. Feminism believes that both men and women should have some say in the laws under which both are governed”.




“Feminists do not think all things will be accomplished through the ballot, they do see the great value of Woman’s Suffrage as the fundamental first step in removing the political discriminations against her. With this removed they feel they will better be able to remove the other discriminations”.
