1 they see society as patriarchy and religious institution as oppressive, it legitimises women's subordinate position
2 Evidence of Patriarchy
2.1 Organisations- women are more likely to take part in religious activities than men, they are normally in charge of them. Armstrong- priesthood exiles women, marginalising them.
2.2 Place of worship- in mosques, men are women are segregated in worship also the imam can only be men, restricting women like in Christianity

3.1 Woodhead- women can use Religion to gain grater freedom and respect even if traditional religion is patriarchal
