presented by the U.S. Department of State International Information Programs

The women's rights movement began in Seneca Falls, New York, 150 years ago in July 1847, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott called for a convention "to discuss the social, civil and religious condition and rights of woman." In effect, Seneca Falls would become the genesis for the women's rights movement.
