Hi folks. I am starting this thread to get some input, hopefully, about the historic role of women in various Baptist groups. I hope it will be a place for historic information rather than theological debate. That is/has been covered in other places. For example, hopefully someone can summarize the roots of the WMU, Baptist role in the WCTU, etc.; women's roles in other Baptist traditions. I have no axe to grind, but ask out of terminal curiosity. Jeff.
