Elizabeth Cady Stanton

In 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton invited Lucretia Mott and a small group of women's rights supporters to her home in Seneca Falls, New York. There, they wrote one of the most important documents of the women's rights movement, the "Declaration of Sentiments." The declaration contained a bill of rights for women demanding the right to vote, hold political office, and receive equal pay for equal work.
