This paper provides an analysis that illustrates that gender bias in religion is pervasive and widespread on a global level, something that is true both from an historical and a contemporary perspective. Various religious beliefs and cultures are reviewed to support the analysis.

From the Paper:

"Gender bias is the unequal treatment of an individual based on his or her sex. Religious institutions and ideology have long been the bastion of the male gender or patriarchy. Traditionally, men and women looked to religious texts to form attitudes of gender and gender roles. In this sense, texts devised by men often laid out rules and roles for women that often undermined the choices open to women as autonomous individuals, while reinforcing the right of men to maintain such control."
