Reasons for this could be demographics, law enforcement, communication, and political activism.

Women have been included in anthropological studies of serpent-handling, but no past research has focused specifically and solely on the experiences of the women who practice this tradition, nor has it been collected by a female researcher.

Abstract:
Next week, the Wake County School Board will decide whether to cleanse the personnel record of former Enloe High School teacher Robert Escamilla. Escamilla was suspended, reprimanded and reassigned to another school after inviting Kamil Solomon to speak to students about his government persecution in Egypt. Instead, Solomon talked about the evil of Islam. Escamilla believes students need exposure to different views to receive an education, but hate speech and the persecution of religious groups has no place in the public school system.
