Reifying Sex Difference Isn't the Answer: Gendering Processes, Risk, and Religiosity
Abstract:The study of risk and religiosity is fundamentally about gender differences in religiosity. Gender scholars would be highly critical about this debate because it ignores questions about the size and universality of gender effects, there is little or no attempt to conceptualize and measure risk preference, and because it does not take into account gendering processes.
