Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton & the World Anti-Slavery Convention of 1840. Setting the S

Elizabeth Cady Stanton with Lucretia Mott. Abolitionists & Women's Rights Pioneers

Our Voting Rights are precious & something not to be taken for granted. There was much blood, sweat & tears shed in the the battle for the Vote, beginning with the periods before, during & after the Civil War that was fought over the issue of Slavery.

The first Women's Right Convention at Seneca Falls, New York in 1848 was a direct result of Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Lucretia Mott's Gender-Based Discrimination at the World Anti-Slavery Convention in London in 1840.

The two Women met due to their individual work fighting to end slavery & found themselves together at the same Convention where they were pretty much told that women were meant to be seen, not heard or in other words to "sit down & shut up."

This didn't sit well with the Ladies so they did something about it.

Lucretia Coffin Mott, born a Quaker on January 3, 1793 was a well-educated teacher just like Susan B. Anthony .

Like Anthony, Mott was angry about Income Inequality & being paid less than the Male Teachers at Nine Partners School where she taught.

Signer of the the Declaration of Sentiments from the 1848 Seneca Falls Women's Rights Convention

It is due to the friendship of Stanton & Mott that the Ladies set about the organization of the Seneca Falls Convention.

And thus, the Women's Rights Movement was born.
