You know how we were learning about womens rights the other day in class? What if the womens rights movement never happened? Our lives would be so different.
In the mid 1800's women weren't allowed to own property, vote, or work. They were expected to take care of their homes and children.
Mom, why does dad get to go to work but you don't?
Because women aren't allowed to own or work on land.
What was the Seneca Falls Convention again?
It was a meeting that took place on July 18th and 19th in 1848 that discussed the social, civil and religious condition and rights of women.
Thank god that the Women's Rights Movement happened.
Don't forget, the Women's Rights Movements is still ongoing.
Susan B Anthony
It's time we fight for Women's equality!!!!
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Seneca Falls Convention
Declaration of Sentiments
We are fighting for the right to vote! Divorce rights! The right to have a job and work on your own property!
Women may have gained the right to vote and work, but these are far from equal to men.
