Suffragist organizers held the first-ever National Women’s
Rights Convention in Worcester, Massachusetts on this day
in 1850. 

More than 1,000 delegates from 11 states arrived for the two-
day conference, which had been planned by
members of the
Anti-Slavery Society.

The convention followed the steps laid out at the landmark
Seneca Falls Convention two years before.
