This project is a literature review focusing on women's roles in religious groups and how traditional gender roles impact how the world views women and how women view themselves. We found that gender roles in religious groups, modesty culture, religious leadership, and stereotypes often negatively impact women’s body image, mental health, and the gender power balance. Additionally, religious teachings of female submission have been linked to domestic violence ideology.
