Seneca Falls Convention, an early women’s rights convention, was held in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848. For two days the women debated voting rights, property rights, and laws regarding divorce. Speakers included Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Frederick Douglass. The meetings became an annual event until the Civil War broke out. Children can learn more at: Convention.
