The greater religiosity of women, found in most studies conducted over the past 100 years, is a true cross-cultural finding which is rarely discussed or noted. It seems to grow out of a complex of factors, which include women's typical personality style, their social status, their being better socialized and in the role of socializers in all cultures, and their childhood experiences. The underlying causes range from the innate physiology of women, which makes them less aggressive, to their inferior social position in most cultures. Looking at the phenomenon of women's religiosity and its psychological contexts teaches us much about religion's universal message and its interaction with other social institutions. It also helps us appreciate women's unique ways of coping with both anatomical "destiny" and culture.
