In addition, property qualifications limited the number of citizens who could vote. See how Andrew Jackson's rise to the presidency prompted significant social and political change. Gradually, property qualifications were eliminated and more men gained the right to vote. Viewers learn about the Seneca Falls Convention, the first organized attempt to address the rights of women.
