This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Barbara Silberman, Chairman of the Board of the Sargent House in Gloucester, Massachusetts. We'll discuss the life of Judith Sargent Murray, an 18th century essayist who believed in equal education, a woman's right to work outside the home and equal roles between men and women in marriage. These were quite extraordinary beliefs to be espoused during that time period.
