The Complementarian Truth about "Selfish" Rights for Women


 Complementarian authors accuse Christian feminists of agitating for "selfish" rights, but the facts are that most Christian feminists (until very recent times) focused almost exclusively on righting social wrongs against all people, not just women. 

The American Woman's Rights movement came into its own when women found that they were handicapped in their efforts to help other people by the mere fact that they were women

At the Seneca falls Woman's Rights Convention in 1848, the issue of the oppression of women was finally being dealt with [primarily because of the Abolition movement] and Christian women were beginning to focus on themselves as well. But even in that respect, when civil war broke out over Southern secession (because of the slavery issue), leaders of the Woman's Rights movement agreed to forestall efforts towards securing the vote for women until after the war was ended. They had no problem agreeing that slavery was a far greater evil than women not having the right to vote.

Fairly "un-selfish" I'd say.
