Seneca Falls Convention took place on 19 and 20th of July, 1848. It described itself as “a convention to discuss the civil and political rights of women in the US.” However, it was not limited in the United States of America and suddenly it became a huge influence for all women around the world. It created a domino effect on a global scale. Although it was the “first women’s right convention”, it was still a very comprehensive gathering. The “Declaration of Sentiments”, which is the final outcome of the convention, was a reflection of the “Declaration of Independence”, yet it was a whole new perspective on the notion of freedom.
Seneca Falls Convention, originally, was an idea of two very spirited and influential women. Namely, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. The meetings included six sessions in which both women and men were allowed to debate on very crucial matters such as suffrage and civil rights. 300 people attended the convention, including both women and men. In EUROsimA 2017, we are giving our precious attendees a chance to be a part of or even a chance to change the flow of history.
