The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations [seizures] on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over her.
–excerpt from Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions
Use the passage to answer the question.
2. Which of the following could be used to support the statement made in this excerpt? (1 point)
Women could not vote, and therefore had no voice in the government.
The Seneca Falls Convention resulted in immediate change for all women.
African American women were often segregated from the suffrage movement.
Some men signed the Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions in support of women’s rights.
could anyone talk through this with me? i was out sick for a long time and didnt get to catch up with th class on reading.
Being out of class has nothing to do with understanding one sentence.
Which of those answers support that sentence.
Think about the answer choices. If men were maintaining a tyranny over women, which of the four choices would indicate that women had no voice, only men did? And there is no excuse for not catching up on the assigned reading. You must do it.
I'm sorry you were just attacked for having being out of school for a personal reason haha if they're not your teacher it's none of their concern. Anyway, choice A is the correct choice suggesting tyranny over women.
