The Changing Role of Women in the Catholic Church

Tina Beattie2015-08-26 (Vatican Radio) In his Wednesday general audiences throughout this year, Pope Francis has been reflecting on family life. In these weekly reflections, the Pope has spoken extensively about the role of parents and particularly about the changing role of women in contemporary society. It is essential, he said, that “women not only be more listened to, but that her voice has real weight, a recognized authoritativeness” both in society and in the Church.  Among those listening carefully to the Pope’s words is author and theologian Tina Beattie, who teaches Catholic Studies and heads a research center for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing at the University of Roehampton in southern England. Read More
