Women and religion.
<snip>


It is a truth so familiar as to have become clich: Women are the driving force behind organized religion. They fill the pews, they bring their children into the fold. The Pew data help make sense of these facts. But the same data highlight the cruel irony that in far too many religious contexts in this country, women remain second-class citizens.

1. Women also played a major role in the early church.
But it seems that the men who wrote the books conveniently left them out of the story as often as possible.

2. So true -
reading the book When Women Were Priests was a real eye-opener for me. I had not realized how much women had to do with the early Church.
