Abigail Adams to John Adams
Abigail Adams wrote to John Adams on March 31, 1776
"I long to hear that you have declared an in dependency - and by the way, in the new Code of Laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would Remember the Ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than our ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember all Men would be tyrants if they could. If particular 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 no voice, or Representation."
