Olympe de Gouges, “Declaration of the Rights of Woman and the Female Citizen”  https://revolution.chnm.org/d/293

evaluate  how notions of citizenship during era of Atlantic Revolutions were  framed as exclusionary and limited by the author. Who was excluded?

How do they try to convince us, the reader, that the  full potential and promises of the revolution requires their inclusion  in order to be completed and fulfilled?
