SUFFRAGE FINDS A VOICE

Seneca Falls, NY, is considered the birthplace of the women’s suffrage movement in the U.S., there, in July 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, along with Lucretia Mott and several other notable women, organized the first Women’s Rights Convention. After an opening day event exclusively attended by women, the meeting was opened to men. One man in particular, African American abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass, was no stranger to the struggle for social and civil rights.
