Rethinking Religion and World Affairs

Katherine Marshall

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the relationship between faith and gender in international affairs. The roles of women in religion have been the topic of considerable research and debate, yet analysis of, and reflection on, the relationships among the three—faith, gender, and international affairs—are quite meager. Drawing on scholarship on the various dimensions of the topic and on personal experience, the chapter focuses on policy implications of the issues raised more than on the broader questions about how religion affects gender relations and vice versa. Its starting point is to ask what we know and what we do not, and to highlight emerging issues and debates.

Keywords:   religion, gender relations, gender roles, women, international affairs
