Write down three ideas.The Sphere and Duties of Woman: Godey's Ladies Book argued, "There is more to be learned about pouring out tea and coffee than most young ladies are willing to believe."

DECLARATION OF RIGHTS AND SENTIMENTS.We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal; that 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 governments are instituted, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their duty to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of the women under this government, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to demand the equal station to which they are entitled.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. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world: Read handoutGo around the room and read the facts-similar to Hollywood video.
