National Women’s Hall of Fame
"We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men and women are created equal........." With these words a dream was given life in historic Seneca Falls, New York, the Birthplace of Women's Rights. Here, in 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton (a Seneca Falls resident), Lucretia Mott and 300 other women and men held the first Women's Rights Convention. The Declaration of Sentiments, modeled after the Declaration of Independence, was presented, and passed by the convention. These resolutions included among other demands, that women have the right to vote. The struggle for Women's Rights had begun.
