In the 1840s Seneca Falls New York became the center of the movement for?
Women's rights (the term "feminism" was not yet in common use): the Seneca Falls Convention, although ignored or ridiculed by the male-dominated members of the press, not only launched what became the women's movement. It launched the movement for equal property rights (married women were considered the legal property of their husband at that time, and the women who gathered at Seneca Falls believed a married woman should be a legal person under the law); and it was also the starting point in the battle for women's suffrage (the right to vote).

When did the women's movement began?
What rights did women demand at the Seneca Falls Convention?
Women at the Seneca Falls Convention demanded to be equal in areas of society where they were treated as inferior to men, such as: - Marriage (if a woman married, all her property belonged to her husband) - Employment (it was difficult for a woman to be taken seriously and hired in almost any field) - Education (very few universities would admit female students) - Religion (mainstream churches would not ordain female ministers) Also, in an historical debate, the women (and some men!) at the convention demanded a woman's right to vote. The convention took place in 1848. The vote would not be gained for women until 1920, but the debate at Seneca Falls was a major event that helped shape the women's movement. Some people at the convention did not want to support a woman's right to vote, because they felt the idea was too radical for their time and that no one would take them seriously. It was actually a man, Frederick Douglass, who spoke in favor of women's suffrage and convinced the convention to get behind it. Douglass, a black man, was a former slave who said he could not accept the right of black men to vote unless women had the same right. Another notable person at the convention was Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the main writer of the "Declaration of Rights and Sentiments". This was a passionately-written document, modeled on the US Declaration of Independence, which explained why the convention was demanding women's rights.

One woman who attended that convention was Charlotte Woodward. She was nineteen at the time. In 1920, when women finally won the vote throughout the nation, Charlotte Woodward was the only participant in the 1848 Convention who was still alive to cast her vote.
