“These war stories from women in the evangelical subculture are fascinating. What did they do? How do they survive? Why do they stay? And what is going on in that subculture anyway? Part history, part ethnography, part cultural criticism, Ingersoll has made an important contribution to our understanding of religion and gender in our time and in our culture.”
-Betty DeBerg,author of Ungodly Women: Gender and the First Wave of American Fundamentalism

“Especially valuable for religious studies and women's studies scholars and sociologists of religion interested in gender and/or women in religious movements.”
-Nova Religios


“It is the trend in scholarship these days to argue that women find empowerment in restriction. Ingersoll argues, however, that an alternative interpretation may be that subordinate living may empower a form of relational power.”
-Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion


“The feminist resistance [Ingersoll] documents, if able to assert itself, could have profound consequences not only for evangelical women but for the rest of us as well, by opening up the door for a detente in our current culture wars.”
-The Women's Review of Books


“Ingersoll has done the sociology of religion an enormous service by providing a more nuanced description of the ongoing personal and institutional struggles of the minority of conservative Protestants who identify themselves both evangelical and feminist.”
-Sally K. Gallagher,Oregon State University
