The article looks at the gender differences in religiosity. It outlines the main sociological theories that explain these differences and it examines the differences in the religiosity of Czech men and women in the ISSP 2008. It shows that Czech women are more religious than Czech men in every measure of religiosity, but does not indicate that these differences can be explained by economic activity or social deprivation measured as a subjective assessment of social status. Some of the differences can, however, be ascribed to differences in religious socialization in childhood.
