  • Court House
  • What are you doing? You can't vote!
  • Slavery needs to stop!
  • Lets go vote!
  • The Equal Rights for Women Reform- Women had different rights than me. They were not allowed to vote, publicly speak, or even get a good education. Women were supposed to be stuck in the house all day, cooking, cleaning, and taking care of children. This reform started in 1840. 
  • Hi! I'm Lucretia Mott, I am 47 years old, a mother of four beautiful children, and an active reformer.
  • At an anti-slavery convention, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton were shocked to find out that they were not allowed to speak in front of everyone at the meeting, and were forced to sit in a balcony backstage. 
  • I am outraged!
  • After the Equal Rights for Women reform, women had the right to vote in every state. Elizabeth Blackwell, an important reformer, had opened up her own hospital which included a medical school for female doctors after 29 other schools rejected her.  Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote many speeches on her opinions and befriended someone to speak them publicly for her.  
  • How come you get payed more than me? 
  • I met a good friend of mine, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, at a convention in London. We both agreed strongly that something needed to be done about the injustices of women. We believe women should receive equal treatment to men. 
  • Lucretia Mott- Why aren't we allowed to speak up for what we believe in? Elizabeth Cady Stanton- I dont know! This is outrageous! Why are we sat in a balcony behind a curtain? Mott- We are being treated horribly! 
  • This movement has impacted today's society in a huge way. Women are allowed to vote, attend school, work, and do everything men can do. Supposedly, women get less pay than men is some industries. In most ways other than payment, women are just as human a men are and are now being treated with the rights that they deserve.
