Not since Madalyn Murray O’Hair has the image of non-religiosity been defined by a woman. That may change with Generation Z.
A new analysis of data by sociologist Ryan P. Burge finds that, among people born after the year 2000, known as Gen Z, more women than men identify with no organized religion. The Zoomer “Nones” are predominantly female, something we never saw in earlier generations.
Writing for Christianity Today, Burge notes that women have historically been more religious than men. That’s finally changing.
