The Spiritual Turn and “Feminization”: Turning a Gender Lens on Spirituality

Dr. Francesco Cerchiaro published an article in the journal Sociology of Religion. The article is co-authored with dr. Galen Watts (University of Waterloo, Canada) and dr. Landon Schnabel (Cornell University, USA).

The article bridges gender and religious studies by addressing a core question in Sociology of Religion: Although women and men identify as “spiritual” in similar numbers, why do far more women participate in the holistic milieu?
In this article they seek to solve this “gender puzzle” by fleshing out the gender scripts the holistic milieu fosters, and their varying relationships to the wider gender order.
