Southern Baptist Women and the Family
This chapter discusses Southern Baptist women and domesticity, which became important during the 1950s. By the 1960s however, the women's movement challenged the idealized notions of family and demanded equality for women in the home and in the workplace. It looks at the relationships of the Southern Baptist women, which clearly reveal the complexities and contradictions of the identities of these women. It is important to note that despite the influence of patriarchy, southern culture is considered to be largely matriarchal.
