Although religions state that men and women are equal with each religion and denomination claiming that they are better than others in terms of gender equality , gender equality proponents stress that a lot of work needs to be done in this direction by religions. Gender equality proponents point out that although women are considered generally more religious than men, many religions and denominations continue to treat each gender differently, including:. Religions usually are androcentric Some leadership roles still restricted to males In many religions, only men are ordinated Religious traditions, law and cultural factors treat women differently than men Religion provides the structure on how women should live their day-to-day lives God is traditionally portrayed as a masculine figure Sex segregation is still present Stress on modesty is usually focused on women Religious texts and practices are patriarchal Protocols are more strictly applied to women Women are more regulated than men Women are not part of the decision-making machinery Proponents indicate that although women have overcome barriers in various spheres, religion seems to be the hardest nut to crack.

In Egypt, religiously justified family laws on e. These are just three examples of the many ways in which restrictions of freedom of religion or belief FoRB and gender equality intersect. Despite obvious overlaps, actors working for the promotion of respectively FoRB and gender equality rarely work together. In fact, rights related to FoRB and gender equality are often seen to be in contradiction with one another. Underlying this mis perception of a normative clash between the two is very often an understanding of FoRB as a right that protects religion — and often conservative, patriarchal religion. For some, this means that FoRB is seen as an inherent obstacle to achieving gender equality; for others, gender equality is seen as a threat to the protection of religious values and practices. The process involves a diverse range of secular and faith-based experts from different institutional, professional, religious and geographic backgrounds and with expertise in different areas.

Clyde Wilcox, Ted G. A number of scholars have argued that Catholicism is a barrier to gender equality in western Europe. The explanations for this relationship have usually focused on historical events and trends, which should result in a contextual effect, and on current church doctrine, which should affect individual level attitudes. In this paper, we test the importance of the individual and contextual effects of Catholicism. We find individual Catholics are less supportive of gender equality than non-Catholics. Once we control for individual religious affiliation, however, we find that those in predominantly Catholic countries are more egalitarian than those in predominantly Protestant ones. We conclude that this unusual result is due to the effects of minority religious status—Protestants in predominantly Catholic countries are more egalitarian than Protestants in Protestant countries, and Catholics in Protestant countries are less egalitarian than those in Catholic countries.

Сьюзан смотрела, как Танкадо повалился на бок и, наконец, на спину. Он лежал, устремив глаза к небу и продолжая прижимать руку к груди. Внезапно камера отъехала в сторону, под деревья.
