If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we ae determined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice, or representation.

~~Abigail Adams, 1776 (in a letter to her husband)

Took a while longer though and some people still wish that it would not have happened.

It took a lot longer than Abigail wanted, I imagine! In fact, I have a quote I should have posted with that one, so here it is:

"Why should we pay taxes when we have no part in the honors, the commands, the state craft for which you contend?

~~Hortensia, Speech before the Roman Triumvirate, 42 B.C. Italy

and that's quite a few years before 1776!

In the last day or so, a new poll shows that while women are now in the majority in so many areas, they still lag behind men in terms of salary.
