Heather E. Barry, Ph.D., is an American colonial historian and has recently published an article titled “Naked Quakers Who Were Not So Naked: Seventeenth-Century Quaker Women in the Massachusetts Bay Colony” in the Historical Journal of Massachusetts, Summer 2015. The article examines 45 Quaker women who preached and protested against orthodox Puritans in the Massachusetts Bay Colony from 1656-1670. These women protested by their unauthorized arrival to the colony, holding Quaker meetings, disseminating Quaker literature, disturbing Puritan church services, and “walking naked” in public.
