Confronting the Modern Era

Pointing Out

            “…By the way in the new Code of Laws…I desire you would remember the ladies, and be more generous and favourable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power in the hands of the husbands…If…attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a Rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have not voice or representation.”

Abigail Adams to John Adams, March 31, 1776
