This is quite an interesting overview of a study of Evangelical Christian women in religious non-profit organizations in the US.
I find the graphs and percentages quite shocking. They show a significant disparity of women when compared to men, even in leadership positions.
Perhaps this comments on how women are unequal in the whole religious set-up that is patriarchal and frowns upon notions of feminism and women's equality.
Yet, a consistent driving force in much fundamentalist Christian proselytizing on social media that I find is actually driven by women.
Christian women preach ceaselessly and promote male preachers, and probably rake in quite a few converts.
It sounds like they do other unpaid church work too, yet they don't seem to get an equal piece of the pie.
And these are not the TBN starlets or dames, but women who are struggling with homelessness and securing a roof over their heads.
Should one pity them or even raise the issue?
I mean they do choose to stay in a patriarchal system where slaves should obey their masters, and women should obey their husbands.
Is there even such a movement as "Evangelical feminism"?
