The 2nd Great Awakening was from about 1795 to 1835. During this time preachers travelled from town to town urging people to embrace Christian faith and work for justice. Dorothea Dix, who was deeply religious, worked to change the penal system because she saw women and mentally ill children treated as criminals even though they did not do anything wrong. Around the same time, Horace Mann saw that many children were denied of education. He worked for freed, public education. Women were denied many rights that were given to men, including the right to vote and control their own money/property. In 1848, the Seneca Falls Convention was held to discuss on the topic of women's rights. One of the most famous women's rights supporter was Sojourner Truth. After hearing the women were being portrayed as weak, she gave her most famous speech "Ain't I A Woman".
