Summary
"In the quiet town of Seneca Falls, New York, over the course of two days in July, 1848, a small group of women and men, led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, held a convention that would launch the women's rights movement and change the course of history. In Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement, Sally McMillen reveals the full significance of that revolutionary convention and the enormous changes it produced. The book focuses on four extraordinary figures--Mott, Stanton, Lucy Stone, and Susan B. Anthony--telling the stories of their lives, the astonishing advances they made during their lifetimes, and the far-reaching effects of the work they did. At the convention they asserted full equality with men, argued for greater legal rights, greater professional and education opportunities, and the right to vote--ideas considered wildly radical at the time"--Cover, p. 4
