Homework Help: writeacher - re religious education

Posted by star on Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 7:18am.

sorry to be a pain but could you read my essay for me and see if it is okay. my assignment was to write an a4 page about sexism in christianity, islam and judaism.

Sexism in religion

Some people believe that there is sexism in religion. This is true for some religions, but not for others.
One example of a religion that has sexist views is Islam. In Islam men and women are equal in the sight of Allah. Although this is the belief men and women are not treated completely equally. For example in Islam they believe that it is the duty of a man to provide the money for his family, whereas a womanís duty is to look after the home and family. However Islam isnít completely sexist, women do have the right to choose the person they marry, they can get a divorce, they can get an education, own a property and are allowed to take part in politics.
Islam isnít the only religion which has sexist views, Judaism also has them. In Judaism the Jewish bible (The Tenakh) describes and teaches different roles for men and women. Traditionally women were seen as a motherly figure. They have children, look after the home and take responsibility for their childrenís Jewish upbringing. Also in Orthodox services men and women have to sit in separate parts of the Synagogue. Women cannot take an active part in the worship. However women are allowed to get an education and also have a career.
Christianity is an example of a religion that isnít sexist as it teaches that everyone is equal in the eyes of God. This is true as women are allowed to become priests and ministers, some Christians believe that women are not as important as men. They also believe that men should be the leaders and women should follow. In a Roman Catholic Church they do not allow women to be priests.
Although some religions are sexist not all religions are.

thankyou for taking the time to help :)
