Embracing Biblical Womanhood
Published on October 4, 2011 by Sara Foss

In "The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible As Literally As Possible," writer A.J. Jacobs spent a year trying to follow all of the rules and guidelines he could find in the Bible - more than 700, it turned out.

Now an evangelical Christian and writer named Rachel Held Evans has attempted something similar. In her year-long Womanhood Project, she tries to follow all of the Biblical rules and guidelines for woman - foregoing haircuts, making her own clothes and camping in her front yard when she had her period. Her project has attracted attention and proven controversial, and this week the Public Religion Research Institute provided an interesting summary of her thoughts, feelings and the reactions to the project thus far.
