Gender Differences in Religious Involvement

Evidence suggests that involvement in local congregations is associated with family formation for both men and women. For men, it’s an automatic, largely unreflective, element of family formation. For women, however, it’s a more conscious choice to foster a certain kind of lifestyle and set of values. The greater intentionality of women’s choices seems connected to the current flux in women’s integration of work and family commitments. You can read about other ways that men and women differ in their thinking about the role of religion in family life in this report: http://hirr.hartsem.edu/research/edgell-gender.html.
