What Abigail said to John, 232 years ago today

"...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 favourable 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 perticuliar care and attention is not paid to the Laidies we are determined to foment a Rebelion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice, or Representation."

--31 March 1776

Have you been watching the HBO series? I spend a lot of time on Adams and Abigail in my Mass Media Law and Ethics class.
 
Don't get HBO, will have to wait for the DVD. :)
