← Why Women Are Bound to Religion: An Evolutionary Perspective

JohnC's figures are interesting.

I wonder who the figures for church gender ratios break down according to theological emphasis

Evangelical clappy happy churches I SUSPECT have a more balanced ratio

Liberal churches may well have a higher ratio of women

Another thing I have experienced is that it is mainly the evangie churches that get "gender specific" groups going, like womens bible study groups and mens "prayer breakfasts"

Never could understand this desire to create artificial divisions like this. After all, doesnt the bible teach that all are equal "in Christ Jesus"

Muslims also have separate services for men and women. Maybe the difference betwen these two faiths isnt as great as it is portrayed...
