The Seneca Falls, NY Women's Right Convention was the first such United States convention and considered the birthplace of the women’s rights movement. It was advertised as "a convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of woman".
It was held in the Wesleyan Chapel of the town of Seneca Falls, New York, July 19–20, 1848. attracting widespread attention.
Female Quakers organized the meeting along with Elizabeth Cady Stanton (who was not a Quaker).
It was soon followed by other women's rights conventions. In 1850 the first in a series of annual National Women's Rights Conventions met in Worcester, Massachusetts.
