you believe that as recently as a hundred years ago, women could not vote!
They had very few rights and wanted things to change. Women had been
fighting for their rights for a long time but the event that is recognized
as the beginning of the women's movement started as a meeting organized
by five women in Seneca Falls, New York. The year was 1848 and a
young housewife by the name of Elizabeth Cady Stanton was angry.
She was angry that she did not enjoy the same privileges as her husband
and the other men in the country. For the women's movement, the meeting
in Seneca Falls was the equivalent of what the Boston Tea Party was to
the American Revolution. A call to arms. No, the women didn't
take out guns and start fighting. But fight they did. And they
fought With Courage and Cloth.
