From the Paper:"Under the rubric of the study of religion and religiosity in America, one of the predominant questions of the past few decades has surrounded the role of women in American religion. Within the scholarly and lay literature alike, the question of women's roles, attitudes, stereotypes, and function under the broader banner of religion continues to plague religious and sociological scholars alike. The brief passage below helps to introduce some of the conflictual information and beliefs one deals with in this subject, and serves as a paradigmatic expression of some of the frustration women undergo in a seemingly egalitarian institution.
'What is it you women want?' a friend inquired recently. He had heard of my involvement in the discussion concerning the role of women in the church. 'The church is a community,' he said, 'and women are already a party of that community.'"
