This paper examines how women in the Amish religion are committed to living a life that is subordinate and subservient to the male members of the community. It looks at how many women within the Amish community complacently accept this role, as it is the role that was assigned to women in ancient biblical scriptures. It also discusses how there are many that would argue that women within the Amish community are unfairly suppressed, even though all women living within the community do have the option to choose whether or not they will accept the faith before becoming a member.
