Lucretia, I cannot believe that we are not allowed in. Something needs to be done for the injustices us women face.
I know, we should be allowed to speak at the convention.
EIGHT YEARS LATER........
In 1840, Elizabeth Cady Stanton is discussing the injustices women face with Lucretia Mott.
Yes. Now down to business, we need to send a notice to the newspaper about our women's convention.
It is so nice to see you again Lucretia! It feels like it been ages.
Later on, Elizabeth and Lucretia will be the leaders of the reform movement.
Stanton and Mott meet again over tea at Mott's sisters house. The Women's Rights Movement was about to begin.
Mott and Stanton are writing a announcement to the newspaper about the women's convention in Seneca Falls, New York.
On July 19, 1848, nearly 300 people, including 40 men, arrived for the Seneca Falls Convention. This convention helped to create an organized campaign for women's rights. New York gave women control over their properties and wadges, Massachusetts and Indiana passed more liberal divorce laws. Blackwell started a hospital with female doctors. Today, women can now vote and have more job options.
