This lesson is based on the National Register of Historic Places registration file "Women's Rights Historic Site Thematic Resources" and other sources on the M'Clintock House and women's rights. The lesson is about a house located at 14 East Williams Street in Waterloo, New York, where on July 16, 1848, five women, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, met to draft a document that outlined their views on and complaints about the role of women in society. This lesson may be used in teaching units on 19th-century social reform or women's history.
