  • Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention — July 19-20, 1848

    In early July, 1848, activists Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton met in central New York to plan a convention to further the cause of women’s rights. The purpose of the gathering would be to discuss how women were being left out of some of the most important aspects of American society, including education, justice, and the democratic process. Held over two days at a chapel in Seneca Falls, New York, the convention was very unusual for its time. In the mid-1800s, public debate over the role of women in American society was quite rare, and many people considered it somewhat shocking for women to attend a politically-oriented gathering, let alone organize such a meeting and direct the discussion. The Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention is widely considered to be the beginning of an organized women’s rights movement in the United States.

    free resource button small  Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention — July 19 20, 1848Inspired by the language of the Declaration of Independence, Mott, Stanton, and other organizers issued a document of resolutions for the historic convention. Declaring that Jefferson’s plea for equality applied to both sexes, that “all men and women are created equal,” the document urged women to make a break from traditional roles and, most controversially, to seek the right to vote. The Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions from the Seneca Falls Convention is provided in this selection from Defining Moments: Women’s Suffrage.

    Additional information about the milestone events on the path to women’s suffrage, along with biographies of key figures and other related primary source documents, can be found in Defining Moments: Women’s Suffrage.
