    The correct answer is A) perpetuating a double standard.

    The other options of the question were B) denying women access to higher education. C) ignoring their own responsibilities in raising children. D) taking advantage of women's diminished legal status.

    The excerpt reads: "He has created a false public sentiment by giving to the world a different code of morals for men and women, by which moral delinquencies which exclude women from society, are not only tolerated but deemed of little account in man."

    So Stanton accused men of perpetuating a double standard in this excerpt from the Declaration of Sentiments.

    The Seneca Falls Convention held in 1848, in Seneca Falls, New York, represented the beginning of the women's suffrage movement. At the end of the event, women and men that attended the Convention signed what is known as the "Declaration of Sentiments," authored by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who received the support of Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglass.

    Stanton accuses men of building a society where they perpetuate double standard


    This, in her view, it is done by developing a culture of mode of morals that is different for men and women. In such a world, she argues, it is easy to deny women the right to education, work or vote. It is easy to ignore the responsibilities of a husband towards his household and also makes them susceptible to taking advantage of their superior position in the society.

    Women, she believes, in the name of morals and honors and subjected as second-class citizens.
