Although much research has suggested a link between evangelical religion and anti-feminist positions, Fowler has reported that evangelical elites have been split on feminist issues. Other research has suggested that there is some variation among evangelical and fundamentalist women in their attitudes on feminist issues, but to date there has been no attempt fully to examine support for feminist and anti-feminist positions and organizations. Using data from a national survey of evangelicals in 1983, I conclude that evangelical women are indeed divided on feminist issues, with approximately equal numbers falling into feminist and anti-feminist camps. Moreover, when the potential for further mobilization by feminist and anti-feminist groups is taken into account, support for feminist and anti-feminist organizations is still roughly equal.
