I will never consent to have our sex considered in an inferior point of light.
Let each planet shine in their own orbit.
God and nature designed it so—if man is Lord,
women is Lordess—that is what I contend for..
 
letter from Abigail Adams to Elizabeth Shaw Peabody, July 18, 1799
…compiled by William O. Foss, First Ladies Quotations Book
