Happy Birthday Abigail Adams!

Happy Birthday to Abigail Adams, a self-educated, fierce advocate for women’s equality!
Tomorrow, November 22nd is Abigail's 270th Birthday.  

Adams famously wrote in a letter to her husband, John Adams: “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.”

This message holds true today as we continue to strive for greater representation for women in government across the Commonwealth.
