women generally have the same rights as men do. shintoism allows for women priestess to lead in prayer in ritual in the Shinto shrines. in fact , the most revered Shinto goddess is Amaterasu, the sun goddess. Also , you don't see very much discrimination in the Japanese culture in which shintoism began and is most prominent. I would assume that women generally hold the same positions and roles as men do in this religion.
