Is religion responsible for keeping women in their place?
Is religion bad for women? That’s the question being asked by a conference held in Newcastle this week. The main speaker is Professor Daphne Hampson, author of ‘Theology and Feminism' who argues that ‘religions have proved the ultimate weapon in keeping woman in her 'place'’. Professor Hampson joins Jenni along with Dr Tina Beattie, Reader in Christian Studies at Roehampton University and Farah Khan, journalist and practicing Muslim, to ask if women can find a place for religion in their lives.
