How might Puritan teachings have led some women to seek greater liberties? Why do you think many men were upset by the idea of women speaking in public?
Because the Puritans were so morally strict, and saw women as inferior to men, women had little or no power in the world. Therefore, they would have wanted less strict laws on what they could and couldn't do. Men were probably upset by women speaking in public because it gave them a chance to prove that they really weren't inferior--they might be able to speak just as well as men. Also, it might give them a platform to call for women's rights.
Which aspects of Commonwealth society are part of American society today? Which are not?
