This concluding chapter teases out the legacy of women evangelists as the Progressive Era edged into the Roaring Twenties. It tells the story of Aimee Semple McPherson who stood on the giant shoulders of these pioneering women religious leaders and accomplished even more institution building. The women who preceded her had already plowed the hard ground of resistance and opposition to women evangelists. They had already pioneered transportation technology in evangelism, from gospel wagons to decorated autovans. They had already launched every institution in McPherson's repertoire—evangelistic organizations, churches, denominations, religious training schools, and rescue institutions. Women evangelists in the Progressive Era paved the way for McPherson to develop a most extensive, wide-ranging collection of institutions from the 1920s to the 1940s.
