Announcement: Fortress Academic will be publishing my research sometime in 2023-2024. Stay tuned for updates as I work on the final draft of Silenced: Forgotten Contributions of Progressive Era Women Evangelists.
Dr. Christy Mesaros-Winckles serves as the primary author of this blog. She is an associate professor in communication, teaching public relations and theory courses at Adrian College in Adrian, Michigan. Prior to going into higher education, she worked as a small-town journalist and still continues to dabble with some freelance writing now and then.
Her research includes gender issues in evangelical Christian culture, the Christian patriarchy movement and nineteenth century women’s contributions to evangelical ministry. Much of the work published on this blog stems for research she is currently conducting. All opinions are her own and do not represent the views of her employer or any organization she is belongs to.
Christy Mesaros-Winckles is open for speaking engagements and also for interviews with the press on topics related to her research.

Purpose of the Website:
The FM Feminist website serves as an educational blog devoted to sharing current studies and opinions about Biblical feminism. In addition, the blog’s primary goal is to provide historical overviews of early women evangelists and Christian trailblazers who served in a variety of leadership roles and to also provide access to some of their writings and other publications.
The author of this blog believes that in both the church and in the home only an egalitarian position, where both men and women are considered equally capable and equally responsible, is in line with Methodist doctrine.
As the primary author and administrator for the blog I reserve the write to delete any comments that personally attack other commenters’ opinions, my own opinions, or Wesleyan theology. The blog is open to differing opinions but they must be written in a respectful, non confrontational manner. Finally, the purpose of this blog is not to stimulate endless theological debates in the comment section, but to provide Christian scholarship that should be thought provoking to both people who agree and disagree with Wesleyan theology and the opinions of the blogger.
