The reasons for the emergence of new rituals, cult-based religious practices and the increasing involvement of women in these activities becomes one aspect of the study. It further focuses on the religious experiences of women across ethnicities and religions, and tries to decipher whether and how patriarchal processes are implicated in them. The study poses questions whether women introduced to female-centred religiosity have provided themselves with new models of independence and personal power.
