“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. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. 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.” —To John, M March 31, 1776
In celebration of Women’s History Month 2016 The 9th District Democratic Women’s Network solicited and collected a number of original biographies and sketches of women, especially Georgians, of history who represented the history of women’s struggle for equal rights. The collection is the core of our website as we expand to add original articles and also links to pertinent online articles..
As Women’s History Month 2017 approaches, please consider adding a biography or personal vignette to the collection, and also links to published articles.. Sketches and also queries may be submitted via the Contact form or emailed directly.to firstname.lastname@example.org
