Human Rights and the French and English Revolutions

A paper arguing that the English and French Revolutions both show how oppressed people of almost every group came to change their status.

“Throughout history, the struggle for equality and human rights is a central element in many eras. During times of revolution where the people join together to fight for a common cause, usually for freedom and equality, basic human rights stand as the main drive. The English and French Revolutions both show how oppressed people of almost every group came to change their status. There is one motive that causes revolution; inferiors revolt to be equal, and equals so that they may be superior.”
