Votes for women


Lucretia Mott

The early years

Lucretia Mott drafted the call to convention at Seneca Falls, N.Y., July 19, 20, 1848. The demand for the right to vote was one of several resolutions approved by the women at the convention, but it would take 70 years for that demand to be met. See more at Women's Rights National Historical Park.
