1815: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the pioneering American women's rights leader and social reformer, is born in Johnstown, N.Y. Her "Declaration of Sentiments," presented at the first women's rights convention held in 1848 in Seneca Falls, N.Y., is often credited with initiating the first organized women's rights and women's suffrage movements in the United States.
