During the antebellum era, women were suffering under the shadow of injustice and inequality. But as the Declaration of Sentiments was presented during the Seneca Falls convention in 1848, the fight for women's rights has begun. The Declaration of Sentiments had great impact on the social, and political structure of the country. After the document was presented, all women started to stand up for themselves, and it brought health reform, education reform and many other important changes to the women’s lives in the 18th century.
