A New Society
In this brief essay, Tabitha realizes her dream of a more fair and equitable world. Tabitha is a pseudonym for Native American writer and textile worker Betsey Guppy Chamberlain. Chamberlain was a mother, a widow, and a protofeminist. In this essay she imagines a society where sons and daughters receive equal education. An eight-hour labor day is the standard. Men and women receive equal wages, and all workers have time for intellectual pursuits. The core values of this society are virtue, industry, and knowledge.
