"The quest for women's suffrage was a struggle, which plagued America for 72 years,
for the simple and inalienable right of representation and equality.
The beginning of the movement in 1848 was marked by the
Seneca Falls Convention,
where its most prominent leaders
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony
the Declaration of Sentiments,
the defining document of the women's movement.
From this initial standing, the suffragists began the crusade
for women's enfranchisement [
19th Amendment].
Together these few leaders would rally for women's suffrage throughout their lives."
--Teachers and students of the San Marino Unified School District (SMUSD)
& the staff at The Huntington Library, 1997
