Dr. Gina Zurlo Awarded Research Grant To Study Women In World Christianity
January 16, 2019
Dr. Gina Zurlo, Associate Director of The Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell, has been awarded a research grant from the Louisville Institute to study women in world Christianity.
“Scholars have stated for decades that women are ‘more religious’ than men. However, there exists very little hard data on women in Christianity—the world’s largest religion. What percentage of Christianity is female? What activities do women undertake? What leadership roles do they have? How do women contribute to the revitalization of church life? … This project seeks to provide the first-ever global quantitative analysis of women in world Christianity to investigate the notion that it is a ‘women’s movement.’”
