This chapter discusses women's ministering among Southern Baptists, which has led them to take on traditional responsibilities of nurturing and educating. It has also compelled them to challenge gender norms and traditional roles that have excluded women from ordained ministry and the pastorate. This chapter looks at two Southern Baptist female missionaries, Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong, and other facets of the ministry, including the Girls' Auxiliary and the Mother Seminary.
