Summary:
"This work will present a complete history of women's education in a Southern Baptist context by examining the Women's Missionary Union Training School (commonly referred to as the Carver School). Established in 1907, the school provided recognition that the denomination needed educated, female leadership but also sought to limit this leadership to missionary work and away from pastoral ministry and other forms of leadership in the church. The history of the school reflects the changing nature of the denomination as a whole, embodying broad social concern at certain times, but the school became increasingly under fire as the Southern Baptist takeover loomed in the early nineties"-- Provided by publisher.
