My letters
During the American Revolution, I sent letters to John Adams. I sent letters to him while he traveled a lot to practice law. My letters told him all about what was happening here while he was gone. One of my most famous quotes from my letters was "Remember the Ladies." This letter told my husband, that the ladies back during Revolutionary times were also important, and that they should have the right to lead others.
I was a determined lady who was concerned about the lives of other women. Being the wife of the second president and the mother of the sixth, I reminded everyone to "Remember the Ladies". I changed many lives during my time, and I am glad I did.
My "Remember the Ladies" letter
"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 to 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."
March 1776
How I affected the lives of others
Helped ladies gain confidence.
Told everyone to try to be a leader.
Told everyone that they could be leaders whoever they are.
Evaluation of what Abigail Adams did
I, Sarah Zhang, think Abigail Adams made a good choice because she stood up for the ladies.
I would have done the same thing because I also want the ladies to have their own freedom.
If Abigail Adams didn't do what she did, the women wouldn't be important.
If Abigail Adams didn't do what she did, many women probably wouldn't have jobs.
Interesting Facts

I became a first lady in the year of 1801.

John Adams and I exchanged a total of over 1,100 letters from 1762 to 1801.
I appear on the $10 gold coin with my famous quote "Remember the Ladies" on the reverse side.

Why what I did was important
It was unfair that women didn't have the same rights as men.
I wanted women to be leaders too.
If I didn't do what I did, women probably won't have jobs today.
