Abstract

Recent studies of fundamentalist women have sought to correct feminist stereotypes of such women as "doormats," suggesting that there are ways that patriarchy can empower them. While such correctives are important, they can sometimes border on apologetics. Joyce's analysis of the Quiverfull movement, a small but ideologically significant wing of conservative Christianity articulates a necessary critique of such accounts and provides fresh perspective on the role women play in patriarchal religious communities and in the broader culture war.
