  • Description

    Not many women in colonial America are known for their struggle for women’s rights. One exception is Anne Hutchinson, a Puritan spiritual adviser who believed in religious freedom as well as woman’s equality. Due to her unconventional beliefs she was sentenced and banished with her followers, and moved to establish the Rhode Island colony. Years later, Hutchinson became a symbol of Christian feminism.
    The bronze statue of Hutchinson, sculptured by Cyrus Dallin, depicts her looking toward heaven, holding a bible in one hand and her daughter in the other one. A plaque at the front of the statue‘s granite base provides a summary of her life and heroine traits. It was commissioned in 1920 by several women’s groups and installed in 1922.
