Women's Rights National Historical Park
Seneca Falls, NY
Nestled in the quaint Upstate New York town of Seneca Falls is one of America's most important landmarks - The Women's Rights National Historical Park. Created by an Act of Congress in 1980, the Park celebrates the First Woman's Rights Convention held in July of 1848 as well as to honor the early leaders of this struggle for equal rights for women in the United States.
Held at Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, the Convention generated the Declaration of Sentiments, a document modeled after the Declaration of Independence that identified women's issues. Viable solutions were also outlined within this document, and seventy-two years later they would become a part of history as the 19th Amendment of the Constitution was passed giving women the right to vote.
There are many ways you can get involved.
