Abigail Adams asked John Adams to support women’s right shortly before America declared its independence. However, he replied to his wife on April 14, 1776, stating that it would not be considered. He said that the bands of Government were loosen due to their revolution. Children and apprentices were disobedient, Indians slighted their guardians and Black slaves grew insolent to their Masters. His wife’s letter told him that women, a powerful group of people, were grown discontented. The petition was very saucy in John Adams’ eyes and he would not repeal the masculine systems. This is important in the history of voting rights, because it showed American Government’s attitude towards women’s rights which forbid women to take part in political activities due to prejudice and discrimination.
