The Seneca Falls Convention was the first public meeting about women's rights held in America. About 240 men and women attended. The convention organizers wrote the Declaration of Sentiments, which was a document with detailed beliefs about social injustice toward women.

World War 1 slowed down the suffragists' campaign, but it still continued. Activists pointed out that women were just as patriotic as men and deserved the right to vote. The 19th Amendment was ratified on August 18th, 1920.
