Women's suffrage started in 1776 when Abigail Adams said to John when he was writing the Declaration Of Independence, to remember the womenn when writing it. After she said this he just laughed and didn't even think about what she said and wrote "All men are created equal." The first school for girls was opened in New York by Emma Hart Willard in 1821. In 1833 the first coed college was formed and it was called Oberlin College. In 1837 the first womens anti-slavery meeting was held in New York City and 81 women from all over the United States came to it. The first women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848. In 1872 Susan B. Anthony was arrested for attempting to vote in the presidential election. The women's suffrage was brought to congress in 1878, and was passes in 1920.
