Storyboard Text

  • The movement begins...
  • Equal treatment for women!
  • Breaking Barriers!
  • In 1840, two women at an anti-slave convention, by both being put in a booth behind a curtain, since women weren't allowed to talk. These women were Elizabeth Stanton, and Lucretia Mott, and they would soon become great friends. Since they couldn't talk they decided to speak quietly to each other, and became friends. This friendship was what started the entire women's movement. 
  • The Seneca Falls convention
  • Just because Stanton received an education doesn't mean women they were going to start getting equal treatment. Lucy Stone graduated college in 1847 the faculty asked her to write a speech for an invention. But, the catch was a man had to read her speech at the convention. When she found this out she refused. This is when women started to finally fight back, and gain their own right from the men.  
  • Will women ever have the right to vote?
  • Give women the right to vote!!!
  • Equality for all!!!
  • Elizabeth Blackwell wanted to be a doctor. She studied her hardest, and was a very good doctor for how young she was, and the fact she was a woman. Yet, she was still rejected by 29 medical schools before she was accepted into one. By 1849, she graduated top of her class, becoming the first female doctor, but still no hospitals or doctors would agree to work with her. This was only the first of many barriers to be overcome.  
  • The Seneca Falls Legacy
  •  Eight years later... Stanton and Mott met once again 8 years later having tea with Mott's sister one afternoon. The came up with a plan to have a women's movement convention, later know as the Seneca Falls convention. The contacted the local newspaper, and got an article printed. On the day of the convention nearly 300 people showed up, along with 40 men! This convention was a huge step for women's rights to equality.
  • The convention passed and the government resolved the problem by saying they would correct the injustices listed in the Declaration of Sentiments, in women's favor. This sparked an idea by Stanton, which was women having the right to vote. Many people thought this was too big of a step and backed out but, Fredrick Douglas helped out, and also demanded the right for black men and women to vote. Inspired by Douglas's speech the convention approved the last resolution. 
  • The Seneca Falls convention helped majorly to create an organized campaign for women's rights. Stanton didn't like reading her speeches at convention, but she could write very powerful speeches, and with the help of Susan B. Anthony, they could create great campaigns. Other reforms were made a reality and over the decades became well known. But, even after women got the right to vote, only one woman would live to vote legally. Charlotte Woodward.
