Women & Religion

From the Times of India:
"Women pray more often than men, are more likely to believe in God, and are more religious than men in a variety of other ways, according to a new study.

Analysts say that the reasons could range from traditional mothering duties to the tendency of men to take risks, reports Live Science.

The findings come from a fresh review of data that was collected in a 2007 survey and initially released last year by the Pew Research Center.

The survey involved interviews with more than 35,000 U.S. adults by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. George H. Gallup, Jr., in an analysis for the Gallup polling organization back in 2002, wrote that the differences in religiosity between men and women have been shown consistently across the previous seven decades of polls."
