The fact that women are more likely than men to pray daily, consider their faith "very important," and attend a religious service weekly is probably not shocking, but in the U.S., the gap between female and male when it comes to matters of faith is significant.


According to The Washington Post, 64% of women in America pray daily, while only 47% of men do. When it comes to considering their religion "very important," 60% of women do while 47% of men do. And 40% of women attend weekly religious services while only 32% of men show up on a regular basis.

Secular scientists argue about how big of a role biology or culture play in gender differences when it comes to faith.

But why do you think there is such a gap?
