The concept of feminism in the United States was born, most historians agree, during the first Women’s Conference in Seneca Falls, NY, in 1848. Prior to that there had existed other social reform groups of women advocating for the “abolition of slavery along with the Social Purity and Temperance movements”.

The Women’s Conference created a more formal organization for women to be able to have their voices heard about important issues of the time such as “guardianship of infants, property rights, divorce, access to higher education and the medical professions, to equal pay and protective legislation for women workers”.
