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 would not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice, or representation.

    This quote is part of a letter written by Abigail Adams on March 31, 1776 to her husband John Adams. In that letter she asked the members of the continental congress not to forget women in the struggle for independence in England.

    All the quote for the first part is:

    "I long to hear that you have declared an independency. 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 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."
