Not to mention Jessie Penn-Lewis, Madame Guyon, Mary McDonough (three 'parts of man' teacher)&c.
That's a good question! I have no idea. And I only know a few of those names, because I was never really told about any women contributors other than the one in particular who converted Nee. I imagine any woman who is strong enough to speak her truth to begin with, especially during times when it was even less acceptable or possible, would "last," but perhaps not there. I think they would have automatically had their own following. Not by their choice, just because that's what would have to happen. There is no questioning of authority in that group.
