Womens right convention in in SF, NY

Exact DefinitionEdit

What was it?

Was an early and influential women’s right convention that took place in Seneca Falls, New York. The meeting went over for 2 days in 6 sessions and discussed law, women in society, as well as other issues such as voting. They prepared two documents with their ideas but only 100 of the 300 attendees signed the document, most female.

What did it do?

It can be seen as another pro-women's right act, but it did not achieve much, how ever it is considered the birthplace of women's rights.


It was seen as the single step in the continuing effort by women to gain for themselves a greater proportion of social, civil and moral rights and viewed by others as a revolutionary beginning to the struggle by women for complete equality with men. Essentially it is considered the birthplace / start of the major female reform movement.
