WOMEN SCHOLARS AND THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION URSULA KING Woman scholars still represent a minority in today's academy. Those writing from a feminist point of view are in a smaller number still. This is certainly true in the study of religion, yet paradoxically some of the liveliest discussions are taking place here and few are the colleges and universities without a "Women and Religion" course on offer. This is a definite growth area in Women's Studies and the stream of publications which continues to appear in feminist theology, women's spirituality or on women and world religions does indicate that a paradigm shift is occurring in religious studies which for so long have simply been "men's studies" rather than an inclusive enquiry into both women's and men's religious experiences, beliefs and practices. But as more and more women are entering the academy and taking full part in its activities, an increasing amount of critical and constructive feminist scholarship of great quality is produced which questions the underlying assumptions of the traditional approaches to the study of religion. However, these new perspectives and results of women's scholarship are slow to enter mainstream academic publications of great visibility and prestige. 92
