Special attention goes to Anne Hutchinson's trial and then to writers: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Catherine Beecher, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anne Bradstreet, Phyllis Wheatley, Hannah Adams, Abigail Adams, and Emily Dickinson. Historians comment throughout; Rita Moreno and Dee Wallace-Stone host. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
