Item Description...
Overview
All That Fits a Woman is a detailed, well-researched and well-written study of the lives of women missionaries and others associated with the Woman's Missionary Union Training School in Louisville, Kentucky. It includes case studies of individual women, along with careful analysis of the school's curriculum, architecture, and material culture. Cconnected to the Souther Baptist Theological Seminary, the WMU Training School provided enormous educational opportunities for Southern Baptist women, while ensuring that they would study and serve within the limits defined for them by male seminary faculty and by women leaders of the WMU. This history offers a feminist perspective, focusing on the subtle forms of teaching that were used and are still used today to exclude women from preaching ministry and leadership within the Southern Baptist Convention. This timely work resonates with current issues, as Southern Baptists continue to draw national attention for their stance on the submission of women to male authority. 160 pages, hardcover.

Publishers Description
All That Fits a Woman: Training Southern Baptist Women for Charity and Mission, 1907-1926 is a detailed, well-researched and well-written account of the lives of women missionaries and others associated with the Women's Missionary Union Training School in Louisville, Kentucky. It includes case studies of individual women, and careful description and analysis of curriculum and architecture and material culture.

The Woman's Missionary Union Training School provided enormous educational opportunities for Southern Baptist women, while ensuring that they would study and serve within limits defined for them by male seminary faculty and by women leaders of the WMU. This history offers a critical view from a feminist theoretical perspective, focusing on the subtle forms of teaching that have been used and are still used today to exclude Southern Baptist women from the preaching ministry and from leadership within the denomination. This timely work resonates with current issues as Southern Baptists continue to draw national attention for their stance on submission of women to male authority. All That Fits a Woman will prove a major resource for students of women's history and religious history, especially Protestantism.

Leadership for An Emerging Century  Mar 28, 2001
The 20th Century will be remembered for many things, one of the most significant will be the emergence of women in leadership both inside and outside of the church.

Scales book gives pause for consideration by anyone interested in how women recognize the call of God and then pursue that call with tenacity, perserverance and determination. All That Fits a Woman is much more than a history of the training of Southern Baptist Women at the school in Louisville, KY, it is a wonderfully woven, and meticulously researched, story of the passion for God that supersedes all of life's other considerations and drives one to do the extraordinary for others in need.

Highly recommended!

 
A History for our Time  Mar 19, 2001
At a timely moment, when questions about the role of women in religious institutions cross social and ecumenical lines, Scales offers a well-documented, detail-oriented history of the founding of the Women's Missionary Union Training School in Louisville, Kentucky in 1907. The educational arm for training Baptist women both for foreign missions and their duties in and for "home" in the broadest sense of the word, the WMU's founding offers in microcosm the issues and trends of the time. The author details the inside maneuvering among Baptists of the early 20th century south juxtaposed with the larger history of women's movements in the United States, for the two often coincided in their concerns: slavery, temperance, women's education and role in society. Individual stories weave across broader historical developments and are set against the background of the at-times contentious relationships among Baptist organizations throughout the United States, and in particular in the south, where the evolution of the Southern Baptist Convention would come to dominate the particular coda of Baptist life below the Mason-Dixon line. The depth of Scales worth, though, is found in the details: students' daily lives at the WMU, their studies, development of domestic skills, their activities, be it drama or music, and the evolution from "calling" in the courtship process to the gradual freedom of the unchaperoned "date" of "dining and dancing, Coke dates, movies, parking." The author never waivers in her assessment of the driving force and enduring legacy of the creation of this school for females as it empowered women in the utilization of the skill most significant for home and church, yet one whose imprimatur yet awaits a final Baptist consenus: their leadership.
