|Title:||Women's Religious Experience in Prehistoric and Small Scale Societies||Contributor(s):||Relke, Joan Rosalind (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1765||Abstract:||Women's religious lives in contemporary state-based cultures seem toexist on the periphery of centralised religions headed by male clergies and male defined institutions and rituals. This was not always so for women. For over 97% of our history as human beings, women and men have participated fully in the religious lives of their communities, each in their own clearly defined spheres. Drawing on examples from women-focused anthropology and evidence from ancient history, this essay explores some aspects of women's religious lives in prehistoric and contemporary small-scale cultures, previously hidden from Western eyes by assumptions and biases which, until recently, informed anthropological investigations.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Religion Studies Review, 15(2), p. 69-81||Publisher:||Equinox Publishing Ltd||Place of Publication:||Sydney||ISSN:||1031-2943||Field of Research (FOR):||220405 Religion and Society||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://search.informit.com.au/fullText;dn=200304273;res=APAFT
