Abstract
Recent research on evangelicals has lead to the conclusion that they are relying upon patriarchal gender ideologies, specifically the male breadwinner and female domestic family, as identity markers to distinguish themselves from others in mainstream America. The evidence from this study supports this notion in that (a) three gender ideology scales constructed of attitudinal items either maintain high levels of or<em>demonstrate increases</em>in the adoption of patriarchal gender ideologies in theology, women&rsquo;s roles in the church, and women&rsquo;s roles in the workforce, and (b) identity boundary maintenance concerns familial roles, specifically gender ideology.
