Write an essay defining “gender symbolism” (Marilyn Strathern 1988) and “gender schemas” and using these concepts to describe the role of images of Mother Mary for Catholics, the Word of God for Protestant Christians, and Jewish law for Orthodox Jews in shaping gender relations.  How are these core elements of religious traditions interpreted in various ways by elites and ordinary women to shape gender relations in these communities?  How do these gendered “symbols” and “schemas” relate to their (religious elites and ordinary women) negotiations of secular and religious worldviews?


***gender schemas theory can be found through many sources from Google
