Fearless Women: Feminist Patriots from Abigail Adams to Beyoncé
  • Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2023
  • Time: 1:00 pm
  • Location: Online

When America became a nation, a woman had no legal existence beyond her husband. Abigail Adams tried to change this, reminding her husband John to “remember the ladies” when he wrote the Constitution. Fearless Women tells the story of women who dared to take destiny into their own hands, some were abolitionists, some famous like Susan B. Anthony, and most of them considered themselves patriots. Author Elizabeth Cobbs will discuss the stories of fearless women on both sides of the aisle, rich and poor, from all backgrounds and regions, and show that the women’s movement has never been an exclusive club.

Women’s History Month programming is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
