About Us

Abigail Adams Society
Founded in 2001, the Abigail Adams Society is an organization where moderate, conservative, and libertarian women can come together to engage in discussions on their views and ideals, as well as socialize and form friendships with other HLS students. Over the years, the scope of the Society’s dialogue has expanded to include politics, current affairs, trends in the judiciary, international relations, and other thought-provoking topics about which the Society’s namesake, Abigail Adams, certainly had strong views.
