Women's Rights Movement

On July 19-20, 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott hosted the first women's rights convention. Held in New York, it attracted around 100 people, mostly whom were women. Elizabeth Stanton created the "Declaration of Sentiments, Grievances, and Resolutions," which would add in women's rights to the declaration of independance. After this meeting, awareness of women's rights grew. There were attempts for voting and citizenship rights to be made. There was a surge of women activists that let voting rights be top priority. This led to this movement being known as the Women's Suffrage Movement as well.

In 1869, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) and the American Woman Suffrage Association (AWSA) were created. Despite the differences between the two organizations, they combined in 1890 to make the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). The NAWSA managed to get many states to grant women the right to vote. By 1920, women's rights were granted for the whole nation.
