Women and girls played critical roles during the Revolutionary War. Some of the women’s roles were not as dangerous as others, such as the boycotting of British goods (Edenton Tea Party), fundraising (Ladies Association), and writing (Adams, Wheatley and Warren), but their part was still significant. Their actions enabled others to participate more fully for the cause and to be well equipped. Some of these women and girls took on dangerous roles as couriers, spies, rescuers, defenders, and soldiers. Why are these women and girls not mentioned as frequently as the men? The women and girls who took a part in the American Revolutionary War should be remembered for their acts of service, bravery and heroism, and should not be forgotten.
