Storyboard Text

  • Meeting Eachother for the first time
  • This just isn't fair we should be able to speak in a public event. They need our opinions!
  • We need to do something about this! Let's stand up for our rights.
  • This is unfair and cruel, we need to demand our respects!
  • Taking a stand
  • Women suffer taxation, and yet have no representation!
  • Women's rights
  • "Every fibre of my being, rebelled against all the hours that I sat and sewed gloves for a miserable pittance which, as it was earned could never be mine.
  •  Lucretia Mott( on the left) and Elizabeth Cady Stanon (on the right) met in 1840 at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. When they meet there they were outraged to find out that women were not allowed to speak at the meeting. The men who were running it made the women sit in the balcony, behind a curtain. The men's decision backfired, becuase it was in the balcony that Mott and Stanon met. This is how the movement began for fighting for women's rights.
  • Debate about the Right to vote
  • I don't care what anyone says I am going to keep fighting back even if my life depended on it.
  • Lucy Stone was not allowed to speak in public, so Lucy refused. After graduation she spoke out for women's rights. Because women could not vote, she refused to pay property taxes. One thing she said was "Women suffer taxation, and yet have no representation." Each one of them kept fighting to make slavery illegal, let women vote, and let them own their own land.
  • Legacy of Seneca Falls
  • Finally after all the had work I put into for fighting for women's rights it finally went my way. Hopefully this keeps going and women don't ever have to go through this again.
  • The Mott sisters decided to send a notice to the local newspaper announcing a women's convention in Seneca Falls, New York. The organized movement for women's rights was about to begin. ON July 19,1848, nearly 300 people arrived for the Seneca Falls Convention. The convention organizers modeled their proposal for women's rights, the declaration of Sentiments, on the Declaration of Independence. Also, Stanton's presentation of the declaration at the convention was her first speech.
  • How it impacted today's society
  • Stanton propsed that women demand the right to vote. For many, this was too much. At this point, Stanton received powerful suport from another participant at the convention: Fredrick Rodgers.
  • Anthony traveled from town to town, speaking for women's rights. Slowly, reformers for women's rights made progress. New York gave women control over their property and wages. Massachusetts and Indian a passed more liberal divorce laws. Elizabeth black well started her own hospital, and taught women. 
  • It impacted our society today because now women can vote and have more rights now. I feel like if we didn't have these rights now the world would be crazy. Women can vote now and we have a voice. Women weren't even aloud to have/own land. Africian Americans were still slaved and they couldn't vote and now they have the right to. I think it was very brave of these people and they should be more known in today's society.
