Elizabeth Winthrop and other Puritan women exhibited remarkable courage in the face of tremendous adversity. Narrated by ABC News’ Jackie Judd, Elizabeth Winthrop: All the Days of Her Life, airing Saturday, March 10 at 11:30 p.m. on WXXI World (DT21.2/cable 524), provides a fascinating look at the contributions women settlers made in colonial America despite the strict social pressures of the time. Expert historians chronicle Elizabeth’s three marriages, the home schooling of her 10 children, her role as one of the first women land owners in the colonies, her experiences as a church member and her negotiations with the Dutch in "New Amsterdam" to protect her land.
