Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton & the World Anti-Slavery Convention of 1840. Setting the S
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.
Like Anthony, Mott was angry about Income Inequality & being paid less than the Male Teachers at Nine Partners School where she taught.
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.
