A declaration of the rights of man, means that the common people (the bourgeoisie) gain rights that have to do with equality, freedom of speech, freedom of religion etc.

Before the declaration of the rights of man were introduced in Revolutionary France for example, the Ancien Regime (the old regime) of the monarchy determined what happened in the country concerning these topics, meaning there was only one religion in France which was the right one: the roman catholic religion, there was no freedom of press (opinion) and there was a class system (first, second and third estate) which divided the people is ranks.

When the declaration of the rights of man was adapted, the people gained much more freedom and the crown lost power.
