    American Declaration of Independence. This was the first time the rights of individuals were recognized. The Magna Carta was very important, but it gave rights mostly to lower nobles.

    Although all of the above choices are quite valid (and who’s to say they aren’t), in my opinion the Universal Declaration of Human Rights takes the crown, as it was the very first document in history to be unanimously accepted by most countries in the world and it is the one that impacted more societies the most. Never before a single document had been so widely accepted.
