Every body has rights!
In 1840 Lucretia Mott, and Elizabeth met at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. The two women were out raged, because they were not allowed to speak at the meeting.
Eight years after the London convention Stanton and Mott met for tea. The two girls noticed a news paper announcing a Seneca Falls convention for women's rights.
On July 19,1848, 300 people, including 40 men showed up at the Seneca Falls Convention. Fredrick Douglass made a powerful speech about how all women and all men should have the right to vote. Sojourner Truth later gave her most Famous speech "Ain't I a Women?"
Women rights began to evolve. New York gave women the right to manage their property and wages. Massachusetts and Indian gave women the right to pass liberal divorce laws.Elizabeth Black well owned her own hospital, which girls could attend.
The right to vote for all women took longer to involve. Only one person who signed the declaration at Seneca Falls could vote for president illegally and she was Charlotte Woodward.
