Well clearly I believe culture and socialisation are more productive avenues of investigation (though here is not the place to deliver myself of some theory, even if I had one).

But I only had to look at the title for the irritation level to rise:
1. Let's examine the data before we declare "women bound to religion".
2. If you are going to take evolutionary theory outside the bounds of biology (whether it be psychology, history or sociology), you'd better have some iron-clad data to be working with before you submit even a very modest conclusion, let alone sweeping generalisations.
