One of the big things that jumps out at you from Nancy Campbell’s Above Rubies ‘daily encouragement’ postings is the added burden on women in the Quiverfull world. Men are taxed with very little, bring home the bacon and be the family patriarch. But women are told to do every freaking thing in the world, do all the housework and cooking, raise the kids, homeschool their children, have a cottage industry to help with the family finances… you name it… What Nancy does is routinely add ‘must do’s to the very gendered roles of womanhood in the movement and she’s hardly the only one.
So why do you think it is that women do all the heavy lifting grunt work in Quiverfull – Evangelical – Fundamentalist Christianity? Why are men allowed to be checked out from most activities and responsibilities in that realm?
