Women's Path Into Ministry: Six Major Studies

by Edward Lehman Jr.. Duke Divinity School Pulpit and Pew Research Reports, 2002.

Women's Path into Ministry is the first in a series of research reports from Pulpit & Pew, a major research project on pastoral leadership with funding from Lilly Endowment Inc. "The most important trend in pastoral leadership in the last quarter of the 20th century has been the entry of women into ordained leadership in many Protestant denominations. In some denominations, between one-fourth and one-third of the total number of ordained ministers are women."
This report summarizes and synthesizes six major studies on the experiences of women in ministry.
