What happened after women got the right to vote?
women, in fact, did not get the right to vote at the convention, but, lead by cady b. stanton, women discussed the right to vote along with temperence and abolition. however women didnt get the right to vote until 1920, and the convention was in 1848. this was mostly due to the civil war. abolition got the spotlight while temperence and the right to vote were put on the back burner.

The women gained the right to vote at August 18th 1920 because the 19th amendment was ratified. This happened because the 36th state (Tennessee) decided to vote to make the 19th amendment ratified. ---- I'm not sure specificly how they got the amendment to pass, but this is all I know so far.

If you are asking about the United States, women received the right to vote in federal elections in 1920. But long before that, some states gave women the right to vote for governor, state senators, mayors, etc. One of the first places to grant women voting rights was the territory of Wyoming, in 1869. Women got the right to vote in several other western states, including Colorado in 1893, and Idaho in 1896.
