New York State Capitol
New York State is where the first Women’s Rights Convention was held in Seneca Falls in 1848 and where women won the right to vote in 1917, three years before the 19th amendment was ratified.
At the Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls, New York, a woman’s rights convention—the 1st ever held in the United States—convenes with almost 200 women in attendance. 

The convention was organized by Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, two abolitionists who met at the 1840 World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. 

As women, Mott and Stanton were barred from the convention floor, and the common indignation that this aroused in both of them was the impetus for their founding of the women’s rights movement in the United States.
