Gender and Religion

Women take leadership roles in many church activities, though almost none are priests. For example, women religious are heads of Roman Catholic girls' schools, offering to the girls a different model of womanhood from their cultural models. Among saved people (born-again Christians), many group leaders are women, and saved women sometimes succeed in rejecting customs such as widow inheritance with the help of other saved people including men. The Luyia high god, Were (Wele), is male, but ancestor spirits (emisambwa) are of both genders and equally powerful. Other gods and spirits are not gendered, except for the Christian God (Nyasaye), whose maleness is not questioned as it sometimes is by Euro-American feminists.
