This website was created to facilitate greater representation of women in scholarly activities by providing a crowdsourced list of female scholars working in Asian Religions. We welcome contributions from anyone identifying as a woman, gender non-conforming, or non-binary. Independent scholars, PhD students, librarians, and museum curators are encouraged to add their names, and we understand both “Asia” and “religions” expansively. We are grateful for initial guidance from the Scholars’ Lab at UVA, and the inspiration and model of Sarah Bond’s Women of Ancient History and Kristian Petersen’s Women of Islamic Studies.
