Seneca Falls Convention, 1848

Seneca Falls

The Seneca Falls Convention, attended by about 300 people, addressed the status of women at the time.

Many cite this event as the beginning of the women’s suffrage movement.

We have included a copy of the Declaration of Rights and Sentiments along with questions and answers.

For more information on this event and others in this era please check out our Expansion and Reform PowerPoint.
