The question of this paper is: Did women have an American Revolution? This question is investigated by focusing on the detection of radical changes that white American women underwent during or shortly after the American Revolution. For this purpose, changes on the political, economical and cultural level are assessed and weighed. Also, the possibility of a delayed American Revolution for women is considered. Focusing on a specific moment in time with a clear link to the American Revolution, the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, this paper examines whether white American women experienced revolutionary change at this time in history.
