19. The ceremony part wasn't her idea

She started the whole idea of this old fashioned community where wives submitted to their husbands, then your right the men took over from there. But the original idea I believe was hers.

In Season 1 Episode 6, "A Woman's Place," fans finally learned about Serena Joy's past as a religious author and speaker. Before the takeover, Serena Joy published a book called A Woman's Place that described a way of life known as "domestic feminism." According to domestic feminism, women should submit to their "biological destiny" as mothers and child-bearers rather than pursue high-powered jobs or fulfilling carers. At the time, a historically low birth rate was devastating the U.S. population, so Serena's words served as both a solution her book focused on "fertility as a national resource, reproduction as a moral imperative" and as a rallying call for religious Americans.
