Pragmatic Egalitarianism Among Evangelical Couples

This study of evangelical laypersons sought to understand how lay evangelicals understand and negotiate theological and ideological notions of family. Both women and men affirmed men as the head of the family with ultimate responsibility for the well being of the family. Men are to take more risk, work harder and longer, and otherwise assure that their wives and children may exist in comparative security. When men live into that role, evangelical women perceive their relationships as more loving and secure, without feeling that they give up a pragmatic egalitarianism that permeates decision making and rationalizes women’s paid employment. The study provides an intriguing examination of daily life in evangelical faith communities.
