  • b) For the document, “The Seneca Falls Convention Issues a ‘Declaration of Sentiments,’ 1848”, the authors provide a long list of evidence to support their thesis that “The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her.” In your own words, write down at least 5 examples from the document and explain why you think these examples best support their thesis.
