The Rebel Was a Lady

Record #:
The first recorded women's political rally in America took place when Penelope Barker organized fifty women to participate in the Edenton Tea Party on October 25, 1774, in order to send the English government a message of what women in North Carolina were prepared to do to resist repressive laws. Smith recounts the life of this revolutionary woman.
