Evangelicals ‘Less Accepting’ Of Female Leadership

A RECENT study by the Barna group found that American evangelicals are less accepting of women leaders than their protestant counterparts.

The research found that 79 per cent of those surveyed are comfortable with a woman in the pulpit, with more women than men (84 per cent as opposed to 75 per cent) expressing this view. This figure falls drastically among evangelicals, with only 39 per cent happy with women in ministry.
