Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood
The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is a complementarianist evangelical Christian organization. The group was formed in 1987 to oppose growing feminist influences in society and in evangelical churches. The group's core beliefs are articulated in the Danvers Statement, written by several evangelical leaders at a meeting in Danvers, Massachusetts in 1987. The basis of the statement and their beliefs is that although men and women were both created in the image of God, they have different, complimentary roles in the home, family, religion, and elsewhere in society.
