Today, and everyday, we celebrate the (often overlooked and underreported) contributions and sacrifices made by women in each and every era of history to today. Though they were not physically throwing tea at the Boston Tea Party, they were participating in non-importation and non-consumption agreements, would not buy tea or many other goods in protest, and were aiding their husbands, sons, brothers, and friends in this iconic event and in the eventual American Revolution. #internationalwomensday #huzzah #bostonteaparty #bostonhistory #americanhistory
