In the year 1792 the British author Mary Wollstonecraft wrote the book "Vindication of the Rights of Women", in which she argued for the rights of women everywhere. Her impassioned words signaled the start of the revolution of thought that began the women's suffrage movement. During the next forty years the now famous orchestrators of the movement, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone and Susan B. Anthony will carry the infamous revolution to its conclusion, the signing of the 19th amendment. The following is a brief snapshot of a movement that would shake the foundations of society.
