  • Women are not allowed to speak in this meeting.
  • We deserve to be heard!
  • Women suffer taxation and yet have no representation.
  • The money I earned could never be mine!
  • We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men and women are created equal.
  • Right to vote, right to property, and the right to practice professions in law and medicine!
  • Tyranny by men over women!
  • Should we demand the right to vote?
  • In 1840 Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott met at an anti slavery convention. The women had to stay on a balcony behind curtains because they were not allowed to speak. When the two girls spoke they both agreed that something had to be done about the suffering of women.
  • Thou will make us ridiculous! We must go slowly!
  • Yes! Rights for women and African Americans!
  • After graduation the schools faculty asked Elizabeth to write a speech but a man would have to give it because she was a girl, Elizabeth thought this was unfair and turned down the offer. Soon after Elizabeth started to speak about womens rights and refused to pay property taxes because she did not have the right to vote.
  • Here I will train other female doctors!
  • Almost 300 people along with some men met at Seneca Falls Convention. Convention organizers proposed the Declaration of Sentiments. The Declaration of Sentiments demanded equal rights for women. 
  • Elizabeth Stanton proposed that the convention demand the right to vote but many thought that might be to much, like Lucretia Mott. But most of the convention supported, including Frederick Douglass and approved the last resolution.
  • The Seneca Falls Convention helped give women rights in some areas. Some women traveled and talked about women's rights and why they should have them. Women in New York got to own property and take care of their own wages while in Massachusetts and Indian women were able to get a divorce. And Elizabeth Blackwell started her own hospital and trained other women.
  • Women fought for the right to vote and knew it would take a long time to happen but later ended up winning. Now women are able to vote in every state. But out of all the women who were part of the Seneca Falls convention only Charlotte Woodward got to vote.
