Day 7 and 8
Abigail Adams wrote to her husband when he was fomenting his own revolution: "Remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them..." The quote actually continues, "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." And we know how well that worked out for her.
