Did You Know


Did you know, Abigail Adams was quite the women's libber and urged her husband to 'remember the ladies' when making laws and not to put 'unlimited power into the hands of husbands.'

Information gleaned from JOHN ADAMS by David McCullough.

  1. Good for her.
    And how I wish that laws for generations had considered that issue. Including to this day.

  2. I think I heard something similar a few years ago, but I am glad you brought it up again. Too bad we haven't evolved much in over 200 years, though. I joke it's still a white MAN'S country. Guess the joke's on me.

  4. She had great ideas. All presidents should have sensible wives to keep them in check! Hugs, Valerie
