The Daughters of Liberty were a successful group that proved women's involvement in politics could be beneficial for the country. As public support to boycott British goods increased, "Daughters of Liberty" joined the support to condemn British importation. The Daughters of Liberty used their traditional skills to weave yarn and wool into fabric known as "homespun". They were recognized as patriotic heroines for their success, which made America less dependent on British Textiles. In the countryside, while Patriots supported the non importation movements of 1765, and 1769, the daughters of liberty continued to support American resistance. In many small towns and villages women spun wool into homemade cloth. In 1774, the patriot women helped influence a decision made by Continental Congress to boycott all British goods. The decision to boycott British goods was due in large part to the patriot women who were determined to reach demands for homemade clothing. Although it is not often recognized, the groups of organizations formed by women were very influential during the war. Decisions made to boycott of British goods would not have been possible if the women had not created a substitute for the imported material. The "Daughters of Liberty" were working from sun up to sun down to prove their commitment to "the cause of liberty and industry". The daughters of liberty were one of the many groups of women who fought for woman's equality and supported the soldiers during the American Revolution. Abigail Adams was best known for the letters she sent to her husband urging him to "Remember the ladies" when he discussed the future of the country. She fought for women's equality during the war, and accomplished many things during her life. .It ended in 1795
