In the mid 19th century, a few women living in upstate New York decided it was time for women to stop accepting their status as second class citizens. Women lacked many basic civil rights that men enjoyed, including suffrage the right to vote. These women from New York held a convention in which they demanded their rights. Their battle took more than 70 years to win. Along the way they were opposed and mocked by male and female anti suffragists who tried to stifle their efforts.
