It is a well-established fact that women have numerically dominated the membership rolls of almost every American denomination, and it is just as widely recognized that men have dominated the pulpit. Both realities were particularly apparent in the United States in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. What happened, however, when women began to preach and lead? This course will examine a number of examples from the nineteenth centuryfrom Phoebe Palmer to Mary Baker Eddyto consider how assumptions about leadership and gender may have evolved during this transformative period.
