The women's rights movement was a turning point in history because without the suffragists and the women and men who supported the movement, women wouldn't have the right to vote, have the jobs that men have, get the same salary as the opposite sex, have the respect that they deserve, and wouldn't be equal in men's eyes. A huge part of the women's rights movement that was a big turning point in history was the Seneca Falls convention because it allowed women to speak out for the first time, creating a reactionary discussion for women's rights, which led to the reform. Through the various steps the supporters took enabled the women to have rights under the constition today. In the early women's rights and women's suffrage movement, the group's main goal was to develop a greater role for women in their society; politically, economically, and socially. Women were seen less superior to males and were denied of many rights whether they were slaved or free, black or white, or rich or poor. As a result, the lack of equality amongst the people became more prominent to women and pushed them to stand up and fight for what they deserve.
