First Women’s Rights Convention – Seneca Falls, NY: July 19-20, 1848

Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott met “in London at the World Anti-Slavery Convention. There, the two were brought to the women’s only section and were not allowed to sit or speak at the event. This event and the outrage it inspired led to the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848.” – National Constitution Center

“On July 19, 1848, the Seneca Falls Convention convened. Heralded as the first American women’s rights convention, the two-day event was held in the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, New York.” – Library of Congress
