They tell us

“We hold these Truths to be Self-Evident:”

because they think we cannot speak for ourselves

 

“That all Men are created Equal:”

But not women.

 

“That they are Endowed by their Creator with certain in-alienable Rights:”

and that our rights takes away theirs

 

but We know that these truths are not self-evident

—we have fought hard to be heard—

 

that not all men, nor all people are, nor anything on this earth is created equal but we will fight until they are

 

…and We Know

“That we are Endowed by our Creators with certain in-alienable Rights:”

that among these are:

…life,

…liberty,

…and the pursuit of equality.
