The American Bill of Rights Guaranteed the rights for "all men"- and back when it was written, this was taken rather literally: Only property owners were considered citizens and as women were not allowed to own property (except in very rare circumstances) and since African Americans were property, they were not given the same rights.

It took many years before "all men" included anyone aside from property owners and even longer before "all men" was treated as meaning "all people".
