Item description for UNGODLY WOMEN (Three Indispensable Studies of American Evangelicalism) by Betty a. DeBerg...
Since the rise of the Religious Right in the 1980s, analysis of American fundamentalism has neglected a large body of literature about gender roles and social conventions. In 1990, Betty A. DeBerg's groundbreaking study filled that important gap, analyzing the roots and character of fundamentalism in light of rapid changes and severe disruptions in gender-role ideology and actual social behavior in America between 1880 and 1930. Since then, Ungodly Women: Gender and the First Wave of American Fundamentalism has remained the standard source on the subject. Unlike other interpreters, DeBerg convincingly argues that these concerns were central to American fundamentalism.

We Need To Know Mar 18, 2004
Not long ago I referenced this book to a student as a book that had to be read as part of her Seminary training. It remains the best way to address the ongoing issues of women's place and American religion--
Betty DeBerg's writing continues to be a well formed, documented, and written book reminding us what gender/fundamentalism looks like here. We are all to ready to point with judgement to these issues in other countries and ignore what is present even now here in the U.S.
The role gender and social conventions play Feb 27, 2001
Betty DeBerg's Ungodly Women: Gender And The First Wave Of American Fundamentalism is a seminal, ground-breaking examination of the role gender and social conventions play in framing religious fundamentalism in America between 1880 and 1930. Ungodly Women is a highly recommended, exceptionally well researched and presented, scholarly and informative treatise that would be a welcome addition to any American history, women's studies, popular culture, and religious studies reading list or curriculum supplement.
