"Oh my gosh! I am so sorry for running into you!" A woman of about 50 said as she helped up the woman she ran over. "No worries, I'm Lucretia Mott." The other woman smiled. "I'm Elizabeth Cady Stanton! Would you like to work together in the women's rights movement? We basically just fight for what we believe woman deserve and we try to give them back their basic rights." Elizabeth said. "Yes, of course! That sounds wonderful!" Lucretia responds.

"Wow, Lucretia, I can't believe we've finally put this whole convention together! People are coming from all over America just to speak their opinion!" Elizabeth says excitedly. "Yes, I beieve we have over 300 people coming today," Lucretia said, "have you finished the Declaration of Sentiments?" "Why yes I have Lucretia. I can't believe we based it off of the Declaration of Independence." Elizabeth replied chuckling to herself.

"Welcome to the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848! I am Martha Coffin Wright, sister of Lucretia Mott. We are here today to convince you all to sign our Declaration of Sentiments, which will give us women our rights. We want freedom from our husbands and to be treated as equals with men!" As Martha finishes talking people clap for her. "Now Lucretia would like to introduce herself and Elizabeth!"

"Thank you, Martha. My name is Lucretia Mott and I am an abolitionist, women's rights activist, and a social reformer. I live with my husband, James, and five of our six children, one of whom died at a young age. My 'partner in crime,' if you will, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, is an American suffragist, social activist, abolitionist, and a women's rights activist. She lives with her husband, Henry, and seven children. Thank you!" As she finished, people stood up to sign the Declaration of Sentiments.
As Lucretia and Elizabeth were out walking one day, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson ran over to them to share some great news with them. "Elizabeth, Lucretia, did you hear? The Declaration of Sentiments won women the right to go to college and and now they are working on giving women the right to vote!" Mrs. Johnson said excitedly. "Yes, it's a great thing isn't it!" Lucretia said happily.
A couple years later Lucretia and Elizabeth were on their way to the market when they bumped into Sojourner Truth. "Oh my gosh! Sojourner Truth! We can't tell you enough about how much we loved your speech, 'Ain't I a woman?' because it really spoke to us!" Elizabeth said as she shook Sojourner's hand. "Why thank you ladies, I also admire your work with the Seneca Falls Convention!" Sojourner says back sweetly.
