Dr. Martha Reineke discusses her experience as part of the first generation of women to study religion at a higher level. She tells of seeing how the academic community came to understand the importance of the different experiences of both gender and race in religion. Dr. Reineke developed her expertise in the areas of violence against women and the use of the physical body. Now she focuses on the status of women in religion using a philosophical methodology. Specifically, Reineke looks at women who choose traditional religious lives instead of the different approach taken by feminists in religion. This group seems to enjoy the same freedom and autonomy that feminists hope to achieve.
