Overview

Gendering Religion and Politics explores the multi-dimensional nature and inherently contingent qualities of modernity as they are revealed in the entwined relations between gender, religion, and politics. Evocative case studies by sociologists, historians, anthropologists, political scientists, and theologians situate the discussion in Muslim, Christian, and Jewish communities. Twelve outstanding scholars delve into the interconnections of religion, gender, and politics that lie beneath domestic and international conflicts. While previous studies portrayed religious women as passive or as relics of the past, these essays demonstrate their active roles in shaping modernity and untangle the web of relations connecting women's religiosity to the political processes.
