The Seneca Falls Convention's Declaration of Sentiments

“The Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions,” which emerged from the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, serves as a foundational document for the women’s rights movement in America and is an inspiration to others globally. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Mary Ann M’Clintock, and Lucretia Mott served as leaders and principal planners of the convention and had a prominent role in the writing the declaration. A key feature of the call for equality is the affirmation of women’s suffrage. Even among groups supportive of the women’s movement, this proposition was deemed bold and controversial at the time. The Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions draws on the Declaration of Independence as a model and is also informed by many Quaker ideas. It is a comprehensive demand for women’s equality in family life, education, employment, religion, and morality.
