That tea party was one of the events that led to the American Revolutionary War. One hundred fifty years ago, in a small town in upstate New York, five women got together for a different kind of tea party. They sipped tea and talked about how unfair it was that they had to give all of their property and money to their husbands. They shared the belief that women, like men, should be able to own property, vote and get an education. Before they parted that afternoon, those five women decided to run an ad in the newspaper inviting other people to a meeting. At that gathering, they would discuss rights for women. That meeting was the first step on the long road to win equal rights for women in America. Can you find these hidden pictures? sandwich Beeping cat * d °g This may look like a quiet tea party, but these women started a movement that would change the lives of women in America. *4O)B* +QO )•• BQT T)«* Q+ IQO4B, Q+ — Elizabeth Cady Stanton, 1868 a ) b © c ( d * e 4 f + g *» h * i ft k * 1 • m O n • o Q P 0 r O s A t T u 4 w 1 z 1 Elizabeth Cady Stanton Elizabeth Cady Stanton was one of the women who organized the first women's rights meeting in Seneca, New York.

George Washington had white hair and light skin. He helped other people and the government. Kiki Corcoran Hopland School Abraham Lincoln grew up in a cabin with very little money to go to school and he barely had any books. I chose Abraham Lincoln because he was a president. He was so tall that he would hold his brothers and sisters upside down and they would walk on the ceiling and make footprints. He thought it was very bad to have slaves and treat them badly. So, he wrote an Emancipation Proclamation it said to let the people go, about 3 million people were freed. Abraham Lincoln got shot in a theater.
