In the late eighteenth century, while Americans fought for their freedom from Great Britain and the Constitution was written declaring the freedoms and rights of its citizens, women were not allowed to vote, own property, get a divorce, serve on juries, or speak in public. In 1776, Abigail Adams voiced strong opinions about sharing a voice in electing those who run the government, and this was the start of the women's rights movement in America.
