At the global level women who identify with a religion, pray daily and describe their religion as “very important” are more numerous than men, according to the data of the American Pew Research Centre. The data:83.4 per cent of women in the world identify themselves as having a religious affiliation, whereas for men the figure is no more than 79.9 per cent. This difference in figures represents about 97 million people. The gap in favour of women is more marked in Christianity, while among Muslims and orthodox Jews a larger number of men practise their religion. More women than men take part in the Christian Sunday liturgy and the greatest percentage differences are recorded in Colombia and in Italy, with respectively 20 per cent and 19 per cent more women than men.
