History and Philosophy
Rev. J. B. Hawthorne, minster at Atlanta’s First Baptist Church from 1884 to 1896, said that women should not speak in church, and he expanded that to include women speaking in public on issues such as suffrage and temperance. This article examine Hawthorne’s take on women in the context of both Baptist theology and the rise of the New Woman in the South.
