Anne Hutchinson

The best information I learned about Anne Hutchinson is how powerful of a woman she was. She had a voice outside her husband's and she wasn't afraid to use it. She brought women together for a common cause: interest in religious beliefs and gender equality. She would hold meetings in her house to discuss sermon's preaching against Puritan religion. The biggest quality that stuck out to me about Anne was how she reached out to women and actually listened to thier stories.

I believe the great strengths in the concept of religious freedom is that everybody can have their choice. There should not be a right and a wrong when it comes to people's beliefs. Whether or not someone believes or does not believe in God, should be that person's opinion and belief. Religious freedom allows this to happen and opens the door for American to be more of a melting pot.
