Anniversary of the First Women’s Rights Conference (July 19 and 20)
On July 19-20, 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott spearheaded the first women’s rights convention in American History. Over 300 women and men came to Seneca Falls, New York to protest the mistreatment of women in social, economic, political, and religious life. This marked the first public petition for women’s right to vote.
Women’s Equality Day – August 26, 2015 is the 95th Anniversary of Women in the United States Winning the Right to Vote.
On August 26, 1920, after three generations of an unrelenting, brilliant, courageous, political campaign, women in the United States won the right to vote.
