Would religions be better if they were led by women?

Would religions be better if they were led by women? Here at the J4MB headquarters we have no opinions on the matter, obviously, but we were interested in a discussion on the BBC TV programme Sunday Morning Live earlier today:

It’s always good to see the writer and broadcaster Angela Epstein on TV, because she articulates non-feminist (and sometimes anti-feminist) perspectives, many of them nuanced, in discussions about gender-related issues. She’s an Orthodox Jew, and makes the good point in this programme that the quest for women to hold leadership positions in religions is nothing more than the politicisation of religion, driven by feminist ideology. Another insightful contributor to the piece was Susie Leafe, a director of Reform http://reform.org.uk which aims to reform the Church of England.

 

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Women are perfect to lead institutions that preach nonsense. 😉
