Two Women "No Longer Quivering"

I've been up all night reading in fascination about the lives of two women, Vyckie and Laura, who spent years in the "Quiverfull" movement and finally broke free. They started a blog entitled "No Longer Quivering" There is also a Salon article about Vyckie.

I am amazed at the parallels (which I've noticed before) between life as a fundamentalist Christian woman (of the most extreme variety) and life as a Hare Krishna woman. Patriarchy looks the same no matter what the cultural trappings one wraps around it.
