On this website we explore academic evidence to posit that prejudice and discrimination against women, though frequently practiced in the name of religion, actually originate from cultural sources. But the final question, obviously, remains: how is ‘God’ related to prejudice against women? Is ‘God’ ultimately responsible for prejudice against women, or is that not the case?
If we assert that ‘God’ himself/herself is NOT the cause of prejudice against women, what is this assertion based on?
Do we base it on the experiences of women, on GOD’s transcendence, on factual evidence or what?
In other words: we are looking for a wider understanding that transcends a mere analysis of historical developments in the world’s major religions. Is there something intrinsically incompatible between gender discrimination and the ultimate Mystery lying behind our universe, the Mystery we call ‘God’?
