Gender and Public Religion in Americalocked

  • Stephanie Y. MitchemStephanie Y. MitchemUniversity of South Carolina

Summary

With rapid development, academically and socially, in the past sixty years, gender and public religion in the United States have become a separate field, even as it is integrated into others such as politics, biology, law, philosophy, and cultural studies. As ideas about gender have expanded, potential conflicts with established religions have sometimes occurred even as new theologies, ethical constructs, and even new strains of religion occur.
