Places Where Women Made History

by Dan Steckenberg

Women's history in the United States did not proceed in an orderly fashion. There was not one leader, one movement, or one nexus of power. Rather, women all over the country, from all sorts of backgrounds, made their own unique contributions. This slideshow celebrates some of the most important places where women made history in America.

Seneca Falls, New York


On July 19, 1848, the first women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, N.Y. For that reason, some people consider it to be the single most important place in U.S. women's history. Seneca Falls was the home of Elizabeth Cady Stanton (her house is pictured above), who, along with abolitionist Lucretia Mott, organized the convention.

Seneca Falls is now the home of the National Women's Hall of Fame and the Women's Rights National Historic Park.
