Armstrong (Pro)
There has been an increase in monotheistic religions- promoting one all powerful male God. Women have been marginalized- unable to progress in their profession

El Saadawi (Pro)
Looks at the Muslim Arab perspective, says its the men who rule the religion who are patriarchal, not the religion itself. The men used culture bonded with religion to oppress women- Circumcision.

Religion gives women false belief- Suffer now but compensate in heaven. Is a marxist feminist

Woodhead (Anti)
Not all parts of religion are patriarchal- hijab can be liberating. Women can use religion to gain respect and status.

Watson (Anti)
Builds on Woodhead. Its liberating to be able to communicate without you on show. Its more important what you say, than look like.

Wright (Anti)
Women are now able to become Rabbis and enter priesthood.

Sikhism (Anti)
These scriptures state that men and women have 'equal souls' so should be treated equally. Argue we should 'not consider women cursed and condemned, when from women are born leaders and rulers'.
