In 1848, a group of outspoken, super smart women gathered for the first ever women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, NY. Over two days, they discussed (well demanded) the betterment of women's lives. They didn't realize then that they were igniting an activist blaze that would burn for over a century! Historians point to Seneca Falls' Declaration of Sentiments (which demanded equal social status and legal rights for women; including the right to vote) as the kickoff of the women's rights movement worldwide. From Seneca Falls to a presidential nomination, women have made enormous contributions to the world, making it a better, fairer, all-around more awesome place. If there's one thing to say about the accomplishments of women, it's this: GIRLFRIENDS, WE'VE COME FAR.
