  • Let's send a notice to the newspaper about Seneca Falls convention.
  • This backfired for the boys because on this day these two women met and changed history. They both had totally different life styles, but if thy never met we would have women rights like we do today. They both agreed that something had to be done about the injustices suffered by women.

Some were even local housewives, farmers, or factory workers. The organizers modeled their proposal for women rights. The Declaration of Sentiments began with " That all men and women are created equal."
