What happened at Seneca Falls?
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.
