Anne Hutchinson was a devoted student of The Bible which she freely interpreted through the lens of what she referred to as "divine inspiration". She generally adhered to the principles of Puritan orthodoxy except that she had extremely enormously progressive ideas about the equality and rights of women, which was in direct contradiction to both Puritan and established cultural attitudes. She was direct and assertive in proclaiming these beliefs, which caused a clash with the Massachusetts Bay Colony's government, which were accountable to the Church of England (Anglican Church), and with the clergy.

So, it wasn't that she was "against" the Puritans, but rather she opposed the Puritan's idea that women were not equal to men.
