with handwritten comments
In July 1848 more than 300 men and women assembled in Seneca
Falls, New York, for the nation's first women's rights convention.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton documented the historic 1848 meeting by
compiling this scrapbook of contemporary newspaper clippings.
Years later Stanton's daughter Harriot enhanced the scrapbook
with several additions, including this photograph of a clipping
depicting her mother in the controversial bloomer outfit. Stanton's
cousin Elizabeth Smith Miller introduced the outfit and editor
Amelia Bloomer publicized its healthful and liberating benefits
in her newspaper The Lily.
