Abstract

This study was conducted with the aim of knowing whether women's age affects social differences based on religious differences, the results of this study will answer the question of whether women are more tolerant as they age. Referring to the Wahid Institute [1] study which states that women are more tolerant than men, and also Najmi's research [2] which confirms that there are indeed differences between women and men in tolerance. Women are interesting to study because they are considered more tolerant, with the assumption that the addition of knowledge, and organizational experience with age, the level of tolerance in women can change. This is important because most women will become mothers who educate children, the mother's perspective on religious differences and attitudes that are developed will also affect children as a form of value transformation. This research then uses quantitative research on 66 high school students and 184 female students to answer who is more tolerant to other people of different religions. The result shows social prejudice against people of different religions is evident in women, which sometimes shows intolerance behavior. Social prejudice is seen in the proportion of respondents who talk negatively and label people with different religions, where the proportion of older respondents is higher than the proportion of younger respondents.
