I Am Woman

I Am Woman

Southern Baptist Women and Feminism

(p.223) 7 I Am Woman
God Speaks to Us, Too

Susan M. Shaw

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses feminism and Southern Baptist women. It is shown that these women feel conflicted about the issue of feminism: some are proudly feminist, while others are adamant that they are not feminist. Most of the Southern Baptist women who contributed to this study, however, see feminists as extremists and distance themselves from the label. When the author defined feminism as a belief in and willingness to work for equality between women and men, almost all of the women who were previously interviewed admitted that they might well be feminist based on the given definition. The discussion also looks at some feminist myths.
