Abstract

Are women more religious than men? Four religious-cultural groups in the UK were examined, using a short measure of religious activity developed to enable measurement comparable between different religious groups. Gender differences were examined among volunteers who were self-defined as Christian (n = 230), Hindu (n = 56), Jewish (n = 157) and Muslim (n = 87). Women (n =302) described themselves as significantly less religiously active than did men (n = 226), but this effect was confined to the non-Christian groups. It is suggested that the general conclusion that women are more religious than men is culture-specific, and contingent on the measurement method used. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
