On this day in leadership history in 1776, Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John that women were “determined to foment a rebellion” if the new Declaration of Independence failed to guarantee their rights. Even though it was drafted in July of that year, it would 143 years later before women were even given the right to vote.
What’s the leadership lesson? Even if you don’t see results in your lifetime, are you willing to affect honorable change for future generations? Honorable leaders must think long-term.
