Women and religious writing
Lesley Fellows writes about the top female Religion blogs. This site is mentioned.
I wonder why there are not more women blogging.
The top 50 biblioblogs suffered the same lack of women blogging biblical studies, although things have improved there of late, well, it's that or people have started to rebel with their own rankings.
I can not quite work out what is going on over at Biblioblogs 50, it all seems to have gone a bit random.
I also remember college lamenting the lack of highly enough qualified female applicants for a post to teach New Testament Studies.
We currently have a Hebrew and Old Testament lecturer who is a woman with us for a year but on the whole our lecturers and tutors are men.
I wonder whether it is that our education is interrupted by the raising of children? Are we able to be less single-minded? Or is there really still some impenetrable glass ceiling?
On the blogging-front, I would not imagine it is because women have anything less to say than men.
Are there cultural and psychological reasons for there being less women? I am not sure.
