The Declaration of Sentiments focuses on why women feel deprived of their rights and believe they should have equal rights because it was intended so by God. To solve these complaints, they also wrote 12 Resolutions. It helps show the overall purpose of organizing the Seneca Falls Convention, and why women fought for their rights for the change they demanded. 32. Stanton, Elizabeth Cady. Seneca Falls Convention. New York. 19 July 1848. Speech. < awsan7548.db&recNum=5>. This speech shows how society makes people believe women are lower status, and therefore women feel angered by this. Since this speech is delivered by a feminist, it shows how woman felt about their current position back then and why they wanted reformation. 33. Stanton, Elizabeth. “Solitude of Self.” 18 Jan. 1892. Speech. < .html>. This speech is about how woman should have rights because they are individuals and will have to face situations on their own, so they shouldn’t be dependent on men. This demonstrates why women fought for their rights - not only because being lower status compared to men is unjust, but

they need to advocate for themselves in order to accomplish the change they want. 34. Susan B. Anthony. N.d. Library of Congress. Huffington Post. Web. 30 Jan. 2014. <>.

This scholarly article puts the US women's rights movement in an international context.

Jay Senter. Composed by Helen Reddy and Ray Burton. Rec. 1970. Capitol, 1972. MP3 file. This song by Helen Reddy celebrates the role of females in society and serves as female empowerment and took a large part in the feminist movement. It is perfect, as it relates to the woman's suffrage movement by celebrating the rights and responsibilities of women. 6. McMillen, Sally Gregory. Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement. 2008: Oxford University Press, 2008. Print. Pivotal Moments in American History. This book is highly detailed.

However, only the sections regarding the Seneca Falls Convention and events occurring directly before and after were read used. 7. Penney, Sherry H., and James D. Livingston.

Wright is one of the most important women in the woman's suffrage movement, she is not credited enough in the Seneca Falls

Print. This book talks about the Seneca Falls Convention in terms of why suffrage was very important to women. It helps shape the argument that the public mocked the convention as there were many quotes from specific newspaper articles and why suffrage faced much opposition. This has changed how I think about my topic since before I thought the press was just lightly joking about it, but now I understand the magnitude of their insults and understand why some women withdrew from the convention. 10. "Seneca Falls, NY." Map. Google Maps. Google, n.d. Web. 30 Jan. 2014.

In addition, this book argues that women should be able to protest about their limited rights because it is their responsibility to create change. 12. Solan, Linda. Convention Days. N.d.
