Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The Mother of the Women's Rights Movement

Elizabeth Cady Stanton with two of her seven Children

When I say Elizabeth Cady Stanton was the Mother of the Women's Rights Movement, boy was she. As the Mother of 7 children, Stanton needed like-minded individuals to help bring her message to the world while she fulfilled her responsibility of caring for her children.

A fervent Abolitionist, Stanton along with Lucretia Mott was one of the organizers of the first Women's Rights Conventions, held at Seneca Falls, NY in 1848 upon their return from an Anti-Slavery Convention in Europe.

During the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London, Elizabeth was DENIED ENTRY into the Convention solely because she was a Woman.

She was subjected to Gender-Based Discrimination.
