In July of 1848, hundreds of women and men met at the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, NY for the first women’s rights convention in the United States. Organized by women, many consider the Seneca Falls Convention to be the event that started the women’s rights movement in America.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton – a leading advocate for women’s rights and one of the convention’s organizers – presented to attendees the Declaration of Sentiments and Grievances, modeled closely on the Declaration of Independence. Stanton added “women” to its preamble proclaiming: “We hold these truths to be self-evident – that all men AND WOMEN are created equal…” She went on to describe the injustices and inequities faced by American women and urged them to organize and fight for equality.
