I studied Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s speech at Seneca Falls. I had to comment on women’s equality then compared to now. Below are my thoughts:
Yes, women have equal rights specifically when it comes to clothing. In her speech at Seneca Falls, Elizabeth Cady Stanton stated, “We do not propose to petition the legislature…to clothe every woman in male attire.” This demonstrates men had attire that women couldn’t wear. In the 21st century it is more acceptable for women to wear men’s clothing than men to wear women’s clothing. According to the research project, Roaring Twenties! by Jordyn Ostrowski And Derek Tomczik, women “were now able to dress how they wanted…” In conclusion, currently men have more restrictions in what they wear compared to women.
