No Will Of My Own: How Patriarchy Smothers Female Dignity & Personhood

No Will of My Own

In No Will of My Own, author Jon Zens compares the patriarchy taught to families by the Roman Catholic and Dutch Reformed churches in Holland with an aggressive patriarchal wing of the home-schooling movement in America. He shows that the earmarks of patriarchal doctrine result in varying levels of abuse of young girls and wives. This book serves as a vital warning concerning the misuse of  Scripture and church tradition to smother female worth and dignity.
