Many of the world’s religions have maintained a patriarchal view of creation, human society and gender roles to the detriment of equal rights for women and girls. But faith and feminism are not mutually exclusive as many religious leaders and communities today are finding common ground with social justice agendas, including recognition for women’s equality. Increasing numbers of women are entering ministry and rabbinical roles while feminist theorists are influencing theological interpretations and debates across many religious traditions. Nuns, religious and women congregants are also advocating for increased autonomy, responsibility and participation in theological and institutional decision-making.
