赛尼卡福尔斯会议 (Seneca Falls Convention) 的第二天

美国妇女现在已经享有投票权,可以保有自己的财产,并且在政府部门里担任公职,但是这些权利并不是一直都有的。大约150年之前,妇女在很多方面都无法享有男性拥有的特权,所以她们必须争取自己的权益。在18487月,一群对讨论妇女在美国社会里之地位的女性与男性在纽约召开赛尼卡福尔斯会议。会议的第二天,也就是1848年的720日,与会者开始讨论伊利莎白.凯蒂.史单顿在前一天宣读的「权利与感伤宣言」 (Declaration of Rights and Sentiments)

Today, women in the United States can vote, own property, and hold political office, but it wasn't always this way. One hundred fifty years ago, women did not have the same privileges as men in many ways, and they had to fight for their rights. In July 1848, a group of women and men interested in discussing the position of women in American society met at the Seneca Falls Convention in New York. On the second day of the convention, July 20, 1848, the people in attendance discussed Elizabeth Cady Stanton's "Declaration of Rights and Sentiments," which she had read the day before.
