The Seneca Falls Convention
By Sharon Fabian

1     Elizabeth kept a scrapbook. Later, her daughter, Harriot, added to it. The scrapbook had old newspaper stories. There was a story from the paper called The North Star. There were stories about a meeting. Some of them said good things about the meeting. Some said it was a waste of time. One story called the meeting "silly."
2     Why did Elizabeth save these things? Why did Harriot save the scrapbook too? Why did she add to it?
3     The scrapbook was all about the Seneca Falls Convention. Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a leader there.
4     It all started when Elizabeth went to a meeting in London. She and her new husband were both to be part of the meeting. Elizabeth's husband took part in the meeting, which was about ending slavery. Elizabeth did not. She was not allowed to sit in the meeting. No women were.
