Manning looks at how the religious communities profiled have been influenced by feminist values and describes the ways in which these women negotiate gender roles at work, religious services, and at home. What does it mean to be a religious conservative, particularly for women, in America today? While it appears that people are returning to conservative religion because they are fed up with the excesses of liberalism, including feminism, a closer look at the lives of religious conservatives reveals a more complex reality.

What does it mean to be a religious conservative, particularly for women, in America today? While it appears that people are returning to conservative religion because they are fed up with the excesses of liberalism, including feminism, a closer look at the lives of religious conservatives reveals a more complex reality. Drawing on two years of ethnographic research in Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant communities, Christel Manning explores the diversity among women who have returned to tradition. Arguing that America has undergone profound cultural and economic changes in the last thirty years, which create tension between women's lives and traditional gender roles, she demonstrates that conservative Catholics, Orthodox Jews, and Evangelical Protestants negotiate those tensions in different ways. Manning also shows that women in conservative religious communities share many of the same concerns as secular women.Manning looks at how the religious communities profiled have been influenced by feminist values and describes the ways in which these women negotiate gender roles at work, religious services, and at home. She explains how they deal with the inconsistencies created by their attempts to integrate feminist and traditionalist norms. In highly accessible prose, Manning examines their attitudes towards the feminist movement, its impact on American culture, and the extent to which the women seek to resist it. God Gave Us the Right explains how these different views of feminism reflect the diverse theologies and historical experiences of the three communities.

I wanted to understand the differing philosophies of women from these 3 different religious backgrounds. This book does a wonderful, non-judgemental job of presenting their thoughts and conclusions concerning women's role in the home, the workplace and the church.

I purchased this hoping to read something interesting and the author is pretty set in her own beliefs being right and those she is "studying" being wrong. I want to throw this book pretty much every time I pick it up. If you are buying it now and expecting it to be relevant, it is full of research from the 70's and 80's and written in the 90's and truly views conservative women as needing to be fixed. Not worth the angst. Pick a different book.

If you want to hear the VOICES of women in regards to their conservative religious beliefs and their tensions with feminism this is a great book.

I really respect that it is full of case studies and interviews that allows women to speak and allow the reader to in turn listen. As a feminists I wish these women did not feel antagonistic towards feminism but also as a feminist I value women's lives, choices, opinions, and voices. These women are important and they speak to the very real tensions that deserve more attention between women who are for and and women who are against feminism.
