Edenton's Tempest Over Tea

Record #:
On October 25, 1774, Penelope Barker organized fifty women to participate in the Edenton Tea Party, in order to tell the government in England what North Carolina women were prepared to do to resist repressive laws. Griffin discusses the event, which was \"the earliest instance of political activity on the part of women in the American colonies.\"
