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).
