Review for Seneca Falls & antebellum women's rights?

Could you please review the antebellum women’s rights movement and the Seneca Falls convention?

Great question @chipmunkthanos

This will definitely be covered by Mr. Pulgarin in the next hour or so, but here is a short summary.

The women’s rights movement got its start during the 2nd Great Awakening, and was soon followed by the Seneca Falls Convention, where the “Declaration of Rights and Sentiments” was drafted. It borrowed heavily from the Declaration or Independence, stating that “all men and women are created equal”. The fight for suffrage continued until the Gilded Age, where the Progressive reformers really picked up the pace of the movement, culminating in 1920 with the 19th amendment.
