A Year of Biblical Womanhood

I was thinking about the book 'The Year of Living Biblically' [by male journalist A. J. Jacobs] and how different it would be if a woman had written it," the Tennessee native tells Shine. She embarked on a 12-month radical experiment to explore the Bible's rules for women—from not cutting her hair to calling her husband "master"—and wrote about it in on her popular blog.

Evans was raised an Evangelical Christian and says within that community there is a lot of pressure for women to live according to the Bible. However, the way she sees it, many of the rules that are espoused by church leaders or in articles are "bullet points" that force women to be submissive. "The term 'Biblical womanhood' is basically a reaction to feminism,' explains Evans. "It means a woman who stays home and submits to her husband. It's a remembrance of June Cleaver—not what we see when we actually read scripture." - Yahoo Shine
