10. Feminism is Not Recognized
The strict Amish way of life means that women have a much more traditional role of being housewives. Decision-making is left to their husbands, and the women usually remain busy with cooking, cleaning, raising children, and helping neighbors. They are not allowed to hold jobs, even as religious leaders, as men hold these positions. This is unsurprising, given their Biblical lifestyle, as the Bible makes it abundantly clear that men are to be the heads of their communities and families. In fact, men are considered to be a spiritual failure if they refuse the burden of leading and protecting their family.
