GSOC109 - WOMEN AND RELIGION

This course will investigate women's religious practices and beliefs in a number of established religions. We will pay attention to such topics as theological explanations of women's role in creation, the relationship between women and evil, the position of women in religious hierarchies, and the impact of social change on women's roles in established religions. Traditional religions considered will include Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. Issues raised will include the impact of the women's movement and feminist thought on women and religion, and the development of contemporary woman-oriented spiritual movements and religious practices.
