Seneca Falls Convention

The first U.S. women's rights convention, organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott among others to address the equality and rights of women. Stanton drafted the "Declaration of Sentiments," modeled on the "Declaration of Independence," which declared the equality of women and men and, among other things, asserted women's right to the vote.
