Examines the contributions of women in religion from mainstream to evangelical to Native American spirituality, and attempts to see why their contributions have been, and continue to be, so important in what many would describe as "patriarchal" religious institutions. Students are presented with 'raw' material: the voices of women in religion over the course of American history. Includes most religious movements as well as traditional Christian, Jewish, Muslim and alternative religious institutions. Students hear women 'in their own words' and critically reflect on their contributions past and present.
