Transcript of Seneca Falls Convention

By: Shelby Celine Seneca Falls Convention When did this event happen? Seneca Falls, New York, July 19–20, 1848 What events led up to this? Women were often discriminated against and left out simply because they were females. After being fed up that they couldn't have the same rights as men, these women decided to take action. Why is this event important in the history of voting rights? This event made the need and want for equal rights for women known and helped to gather more supporters for equal rights in the process. It was one of the firsts examples of women standing up for themselves and really set an example of how determined and involved women wanted to be. How did the people involved take part in public affairs? Those involved created the Declaration of Sentiments and had it signed by 68 women and 32 men to try to make a point to the government as well as the public that this was a problem that needed to be addressed. Who was involved? Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott called together the first meeting to deal with women's rights. Together, all the participants created the Declaration of Sentiments saying how they deserve the same rights as everyone else.
