Euphemia Drysdale came to Windsor in 1923 -- the first woman to serve as minister of the Windsor Congregational Church. At the time, many congregations were reluctant to embrace the relatively novel idea of a woman preacher. While doing some research into Windsor's houses of worship, I came across a wonderful piece of persuasive writing by Drysdale on this very issue: the fitness of women to preach and to fulfill the role of community religious leader. It was published the year before she took up the Windsor post (which she held until her retirement in 1938) in The Homiletic Review, a monthly magazine of current religious thought published by Funk & Wagnall. It appears to be a reprint of a speech that she gave, but there is no indication as to where or when, so she may simply have written it in the style of a sermon.
I was enormously taken with Drysdale's spirited and humorous approach to what was at the time a fairly divisive issue within Protestant thought. See if you agree!
