Women's History Month: Abigail Adams on equality

Well, friends, here we are -- the last day of celebrating brave and fierce and determined women. I hope you've all learned something from the wise words of Susan B. Anthony, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks and Anne Frank.

I thought we'd end today with a real zinger. This First Lady sure didn't mince words when it came to fighting for women and equality. You could certainly say that she knew what was what...

"...remember the ladies, and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and 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.”

Did you hear that one, boys? Better be careful because we're strong enough to form a rebellion! Wise words, don't you think? xoxo

  1. Jesus. Your simplistic view of history is embarrassing. And if you insist on addressing the entire male gender as "boys" you really will never have a proper date, much less a relationship.
