An author and blogger who often writes on issues of biblical womanhood has called upon Christian parents to raise their daughters to resist “toxic feminist messages.”

Carolyn Mahaney, author of multiple books who along with her daughters oversees a website called Girltalk, has expressed her concerns with modern American feminism.

In an article posted Tuesday on the popular theology website Desiring God, Mahaney explained that she “sought to raise my daughters to withstand the tidal wave of feminism that threatened their femininity.”

“My daughters are, to this day, skilled and dedicated mothers. But the world seems a scarier place than it was then, and mothering a more daunting task,” wrote Mahaney.

Mahaney stressed that Christian parents “need to be alert and shrewd” in order to raise daughters who “reject the false teaching about womanhood from our culture” and avoid “the cultural confusion over gender-related issues.”

A key feature of this, argued Mahaney, would involve “the fundamentals of biblical womanhood in our daughters’ education.”

“Am I preparing my daughter to be the kind of woman who is strong enough to submit to her husband? Determined enough to complete the difficult task of raising children?” Mahaney asked.
