As the colonists became increasingly dissatisfied in the rule of the British government, women began to take an active role in the movements leading up to the Revolutionary War. After obtaining independence from the crown, women became dissatisfied with their exclusion from Constitutional rights. Daughters of Liberty traces women''s role through the war and the Early Republic, including the creation of the Daughters of Liberty, African-American mutual aid societies, and the first women''s relief organization, the Ladies Association of Philadelphia.
