Elizabeth Cady Stanton read the document to the attendees. ” The addition of women in the midst of a familiar and cherished phrase radically altered its meaning. Instead of rebelling against a monarch, this new document made the case for a new revolution. ”34 The Declaration of Sentiments included some of the same concepts brought forth by the Declaration of Independence, but the differences in the two dramatically stated the case for women’s rights: 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.
