Creation of the Declaration of Sentiments; July 20, 1848
Women protest to get the right to vote
We demand the right to vote!
Women gain all of the rights they wish for except the right to vote
About 300 women meet in Seneca Falls, NY to protest their rights. Most women are oppressed at the time and feel they don't have freedom in the United States. These women want the natural rights stated in the constitution which they feel they are not given.
Men are allowed at the convention on day 2. The Declaration of Sentiments is drafted by the women at the convention. The declaration asks for more rights for women and all rights are given except one.
Women do not receive the right to vote after sending the Declaration of Sentiments to the capitol. Women at the convention are angry that they did not receive all the rights. Some of the decide to try and fight for this right that they were denied
