Abigail asks her husband to consider the rights of women.

Remember the Ladies (0:11)
March 31 - April 5, 1776

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 have been. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could.
