Storyboard Text

  • We can't even speak?
  • This is outragous!!
  • It's my decision!
  • But I...
  • Well i said no and that's final!
  • Why can't we have a say?
  • Two women named Lucretia  Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton met at an Anti-Slavery Convention in London. They were furious to find  out that they were not allowed to speak at the meeting.  They were forced to sit up in the balcony behind the   curtains.  But that was the reason they met.
  • Hmm... This doesn't seem right.
  • At this time women abolitionist  were trying to convince lawmakers to make  slavery a crime.  But it was very difficult  for them because   women didn't have many rights either. They couldn't vote,  speak in public,  and  sometimes their husbands would beat them.  Women were treated a lot like how slaves were.
  • Ms. Stone, i was wondering if you would like to write a speech?
  • When the two women met, you could tell they were much different from one another. Lucretia was 47 and a mother of four. Then you looked at Elizabeth who was 25 and newly married.  They may have not looked the same, but they definitely thought alike.
  • Finally! 
  • Stanton  later ended up   going to Troy Female Seminary. It was the nations first high school for girls. She knew from her studies that women were not treated equally. So when she met Lucretia, she knew something had to be done.
  • But even if you did have a good education, it didn't mean women would be treated equal.   A women named Lucy Stone graduated from Oberlin College in 1847  and the faculty invited her to write a speech. But the school wouldn't allow women to speak in public so she refused.
  • I'm sorry but, if i cant present my speech, I refuse to write one.
  • Lucy Stones sister-in-law named Elizabeth Blackwell wanted to become a doctor. She studied almost every subject but was still rejected.  It took getting rejected by 29 medical schools before she was accepted. In 1849 she graduated in the top of her class and became the countries first female doctor.   She  made a big impact on women today.
