Don't forget the ladies!

If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to forment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.
Abigail Adams, U.S. First Lady, 1776

 Often, the U.S. Constitution is quoted as being representative of ALL American's rights.  Have you read this document?  It explicitly references only men (white, property-owning men, at that).  Abigail Adams warned her husband that women should not be left out of the discussions to establish a new nation.

Yes. History continues to repeat itself.
