Samuel Castrejon Period 0 10/8/2011 Syllabus #5 Purpose Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote the “Declaration of Sentiments of the Seneca Falls Woman’s Rights Conventions” with the purpose to persuade her readers to believe that the women of America have been treated with injustice regardless of the words that are placed in Declaration of Independence.
