United States fundamentalist Christian misogyny

This video from the USA says about itself:

At this program on March 11, 2009 at the Museum [of Jewish Heritage], three women discussed their struggle to reconcile their feminism with their religious beliefs and practices, and shared how they have reclaimed their religions in a personal way.

From left to right: Kathryn Joyce (moderator), “Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement”; Reverend Jane Holmes Dixon, former Episcopal Bishop of Washington; Asra Q. Nomani, “Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam”; and Blu Greenberg, “On Women and Judaism: A View from Tradition”.

Creepy Christian Patriarchy Movement Shackles Daughters to Their Fathers and Homes

The stay-at-home-daughters movement encourages young girls and single women to forgo college and employment in favor of training as “keepers at home.”

November 29, 2010

“Daughters aren’t to be independent. They’re not to act outside the scope 
of their father. As long as they’re under the authority of their fathers, fathers have the ability to nullify or not the oaths and the vows. Daughters can’t just go out 
independently and say, ‘I’m going to marry whoever I want.’ No. The father has 
the ability to say, ‘No, I’m sorry, that has to be approved by me.’”
