This timely and fascinating historical study of Protestant women will increase the appreciation of their continuing struggle for acceptance within their churches and of their contribution to the success of the Protestant movement. An introductory chapter traces the origins of female subordination and exclusion from the preaching ministry, a practice that was reinforced by Protestant interpretations of Scripture. In essays contributed by recognized specialists, women's roles both in the early development of Protestant sects and in supporting established churches are examined, and their contributions--through teaching, charitable activities, donations, writing, speech making and publishing--are noted. This volume includes an account of Protestant women's involvement in reform movements and their prolonged struggle for ordination and acceptance in the preaching ministry.
