An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 31 of March, repeating indefinitely
On this day in 1776, Abigail Adams wrote her husband John her now-famous letter urging him to “remember the ladies.”
“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… 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.”
Abigail Adams, Benjamin Blyth, 1766
