Who were the Daughters of Liberty?


The Daughters of Liberty were an influential group of women in colonial America around 1766 who showed loyalty to the cause of American independence by boycotting the use of British goods, including tea. Instead of using imported merchandise, the women made homemade products and their own fabrics.

The Daughters of Liberty were American patriots from all different regions and of all different ages. They were willing to do whatever it took, including acting outside the law, to end British rule. The Daughters' activities involved producing "homespun" alternatives to imported goods in order to reduce America's dependence on Britain.

The most enthusiastic of the daughters would even refuse to accept a gentleman caller if he did not support the patriot cause.

Among the most well-known Daughters of Liberty were Sarah Franklin Bache, Esther Reed and Martha Washington.
