Frederick Douglass attends the first Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY. He speaks in defense of its organizer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton. She was an American social activist, abolitionist, and leading figure of the early woman's movement. Her Declaration of Sentiments, presented at the first women's rights convention held in 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York, is often credited with initiating the first organized woman's rights and woman's suffrage movements in the United States.
