Today’s tour takes us back to western New York, circa 1848, when the first American women’s rights convention was held in Seneca Falls. The participants signed a “Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions” that outlined the main issues and goals for the emerging women’s movement — including the demand for women’s right to vote.

History Channel Exhibits: Woman’s Suffrage
http://www.history.com/exhibits/woman/main.html
****
This History Channel exhibit is divided into three sections: History (a synopsis of 220 years of women’s rights in America), Timeline (important events from 1777 to 1997) and Firsts. I particularly enjoyed Firsts, a timeline of women who were first at some achievement. For example, in 1715 Ann Teresa Mathews became the first women whose invention received a patent. Unfortunately, the patent was granted to her husband!

A History of the American Suffragist Movement
http://www.suffragist.com/ex1.htm
****
Consisting of excerpts from Doris Weatherford,’s book of the same title, this site is both well-illustrated and well-written. In addition to the chapter excerpts and primary source documents, you’ll find a timeline that begins in 1637 (“Anne Hutchinson is convicted of sedition and expelled from the Massachusetts colony for her religious ideas.”) and ends with the 1920 ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment on August 26.

National Women’s History Museum: Woman Suffrage Cyber Exhibit

*****
At the 1848 Seneca Falls convention, “the delegates adopted a platform that called for a broad range of social, economic, legal, and political reforms that would dramatically raise the status of women in American life. To the surprise of most of us today, the demand for women’s right to vote (called woman suffrage) was the most controversial reform proposed at the convention.”
There are two exhibits to enjoy at this cyber museum: the first is an illustrated narrative (called an “in-depth tour”), and the second is an image gallery of suffragette promotional items such as buttons, ribbons and posters.
