Answer preview

For decades, human rights activists have fought for equal rights between men and women in the United States (US). A notable historical event towards this goal occurred in 1848 with the signing of the Declaration of Sentiments. This was the first historically documented event that showed the active advocacy of women’s equal rights in society. Currently, events like the US Census Bureau of 2019 and other national research surveys have occupied a similar place in society. There are similarities and differences between the Declaration of Sentiments of 1848 and the US Census Bureau survey of 2019 to show the actual state of women’s place in our society (Twenge and Thomas, 954).
