Storyboard Text

  • Welcome to the World Anti- Slavery Convention!
  • World Anti- Slavery Convention
  • Ladies- you are coming with me.
  • We have rights too! We need to fight for women's rights!
  • I can't believe that we have to stand here behind the curtain the whole time!
  • You are to sit behind this curtain and wait patiently for the convention to end.
  • We can't just sit around and wait for things to happen!
  • This isn't fair!
  • Two important women- Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton met at a World Anti- Slavery Convention. However, because they were female they were not allowed to talk to all the people there.
  • Calling Elizabeth Cady Stanton
  • They were forced to sit in the balcony with the curtain closed. They both disliked their situation and started talking about what to do.
  • Sounds good! Let's do this!
  • Thanks for coming! We need to create a campaign for women's rights!
  • A lot of other women were having troubles too. Elizabeth Blackwell was a woman who wanted to be a doctor but 29 schools rejected her before 1 school accepted her. All because women didn't have very many rights.
  • Are you with us?
  • So, Mott called up Stanton and said that they should meet up (she didn't actually call but you get the idea). They eventually met up at Mott's sister's house.
  • At Mott's sister's house they talked about a plan to campaign for women's rights.
  • They got a lot of people on their side. As we know today women have many many more rights than way back then.
