Finding Women of Valor: Rachel Held Evans’s A Year of Biblical Womanhood

The premise was simple: Evans would spend a year taking “biblical womanhood” literally, while simultaneously researching existing scholarship and meeting women from other (often more traditional) faith backgrounds. Some commandments she would undertake for the entire year — like taking on all cooking and housekeeping responsibilities — while others (like sleeping outside in a tent while menstruating) would only last one month. Along the way, she would visit and interview women of other traditions to learn about their interpretations of what it means to live as a godly woman.
