In the middle of the nineteenth century women's rights became a cause for which many women were willing to fight. The Women's Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848 was the first attack in a battle that would last for many years.

They will also gain insight by studying a suffrage campaign song and by analyzing political cartoons on the topic.
