This study examines if married women who attend churches that teach patriarchal marriage roles have lower self-esteem than married women who attend churches that teach egalitarianism in marriage. Forty participants from two churches were administered the Contingencies of Self-Worth Survey (Crocker, 2003). Although the difference in self-esteem between the two groups was not found to be statistically significant, this study brought to light several issues that could be better controlled in a large-scale study in the future.
