Woman’s Revolution — Seneca Falls, and Rochester

“Two conventions have recently been held at Seneca Falls and Rochester, which, though waking up some wrong feeling among the ‘lords of creation’, have nevertheless aimed a blow at prevailing despotic usages, which will be effective in assigning to Woman her just position in society.   Proof was abundantly submitted at these Conventions of woman’s equality with man, exploding the absurd dogma of her incapacity to care of herself.  Presuming the proceedings will find place in the Liberator, I forbear further comments.   W.C.N., Rochester, August 1848 (Liberator, September 1, 1848, pg 1)
