  • Equal Rights for Women  
  • Hello, I'm Elizabeth Cady Stanton
  • Hello Elizabeth Cady Stanton, I'm Lucretia Mott
  • Anti-Slavery Convention 
  • The Seneca Falls Convention  
  •   Debate About the Right to Vote
  • We should have the right to vote!
  • Thou will make us ridiculous! We must go slowly
  • In 1840, two women, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton met and a friendship was sparked. The friend ship was sparked because of the women's rights movement that as organized. The two met at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. They were outraged to discover that women were not allowed to speak at the meeting. The men who ran the convention made women sit in the balcony, behind a curtain.
  • Men had more rights than women
  • On July 19, 1848, nearly 300 people, including 40 men, arrived for the Seneca Falls Convention. Many were abolitionists, Quakers, or other reformers. Some were local housewives, farmers, and factory workers. The convention organizers modeled their proposal for women's rights, the Declaration of Setiments, on the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident,” the document began, “that all men and women are created equal.”
  • How The Movement Impacted Today  
  • The convention passed resolutions in favor of correcting the injustices listed in the Declaration of Sentiments. Then Stanton proposed that women demand the right to vote. For many, this step was too much. Even Mott cried, “Thou will make us ridiculous! We must go slowly.”
  •   Women's Rights in 2018
  • Women in the 1800s were often unequally treated compared to the men. The men had more opportunities to do things like, own property, get an education, can get a job, get paid more.
  • Womens rights in the mid-1800s impacted Womens rights today in many ways. One way their rights impacted today was that the movement made it possible for the women today to have more rights that are fair.
  • Ha, we are more equal now thanks to Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton
  • Women in 2018 have way more rights than they did in the mid-1800s. Women and Men are equal today, in the year 2018. 
  • Lets Goooo, we have equal rights now!
