Until We Have The Same Rights Everywhere.
Amy E. Bartell We solemnly vow that there should never be another season of silence until we have the same rights everywhere on this green earth. –Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 1881 (IWD) Bottom of poster reads: "On July 19, 1848, at Seneca Falls, NY, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott were joined by 300 women and men in the first women's rights convention in the U.S. Two years later, Susan B. Anthony joined the movement.
On August 26, 1920, after more than half a century of non-violent protest, perseverance and courage by these women and the generation that followed, the 19th Amendment granting woman suffrage was ratified. Earlier in U.S. history, some women were granted the right to vote and it was later taken away.
