Womens’ Rights and Taxation

October 22, 1852

Included is a letter from Harriet Hunt, 32 Green St., Boston, in which she addresses The Treasurer and Assessors of the City.  It is a “protest against the injustice and inequality of levying taxes upon women, and at the same time refusing them any vote or voice in the imposition and expenditure of the same.”  The item is introduced by the editor, saying, “It will be easy enough to sneer at this letter, but its facts and arguments, so clearly and soberly put, will have their effect on candid and thinking men.”
