The time of the Women’s Rights Movement was in the age of reform. In the nineteenth century women faced injustices set forth by gender barriers. Many early American reformers were idealists of the middle class, inspired by evangelical Protestantism who failed to take account of the new forces of industrialization. Women were raised under the impression that it was a man's world and that the home was the woman's place. These injustices were met by the strength and will power of many influential female leaders of the time. These women were intelligent, idealistic, and filled with belief in the evangelical religion. Two of the most well known activists of the time were Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Several momentous events on the long road to women’s suffrage occurred during the early to mid nineteenth century. Such events include the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, held in New York state which called for recognition that all men and women are created equal. There was also an earlier World Anti-Slavery Convention of 1840 held in London, England. Other movements of the time include the temperance movement. Most moderate reformers in this case believed in the moderation of alcohol rather than elmination of the habit.
