Anne Hutchinson —History -America’s first Feminist
Anne Hutchinson is a woman to be admired by any of us who believe in the rights of the individual to freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom to worship.
Real heroes are people who in the face of adversity, refuse to betray their ideals or ethics, no matter what the cost.
Anne Hutchinson was such a woman. It may be difficult for us to imagine exactly how it must have been like living under Puritan rule in the newly established American colonies, especially if you were a woman, as at this point in our history, women weren’t even allowed to think for themselves.
Anne Hutchinson was a wife, mother, religious leader, and perhaps the first American feminist.
