Fundamentalist women are often depicted as dedicated to furthering the goals and ideas of fundamentalist men and thus of ancillary importance to the movement as a whole. Godly Women, Brenda Brasher's ethnographic study, reveals the paradox that fundamentalist women can be powerful people in a religious cosmos generally understood to be organized around their disempowerment.

I was appalled after reading the 1st paragraph and dint read any more. Because in the bible it does say that a a woman should work in the house hold Proverbs 31:10-31. God made us all for a purpose, an the house hold is very important. Just because the world makes wemon seem less important if they work from the house hold, thats not true. Wemon play a very important role keeping the house hold and family together.
