A debate on the public role of religion and its social and gender implications
Casanova, Jose; Phillips, Anne
This publication features a debate between the authors on the relation between religion, politics, and gender equality. Four aspects are discussed: (i) what and any authority states can give to religious groups without threatening gender equality; (ii) the impact of religions on attitudes and lives, beyond institutional power; (iii) the possibilities and limits of internal reform; and (iv) the possibilities and difficulties of alliances between religious and secular groups.
