Historian Bettany Hughes traces the history of women in religion, and argues that their roles have often been ignored or hidden despite their importance to the development of spiritual traditions. She visits India, where she joins thousands of Hindus in the worship of the goddess Durga, and back in Europe examines the issue of whether women should be priests.
