Around the world, women’s voices are rising – in anger, in excitement, in demand, in support, in frustration, in joy. And as the chorus grows, the world is watching, waiting, to learn who will respond to these voices and how. In particular, is the Church listening? Does the Catholic Church engage the voices of women to the aid and advancement of itself?
Viewed through the lens of the secular world, the answer is no – women of the Church are oppressed, silenced, unable to break a stained glass ceiling of Church hierarchy.
But we invite you into a new conversation, with new perspective, to answer these crucial and controversial questions.
In the Salt + Light documentary, A Woman’s Voice: Conversations of Discernment and Grace, we hear the voices of eleven women from around the world and learn of the stories, work, and vocations that are enhancing ministries, fighting for justice, and influencing thought. From the mother at home to the missionary in the field, from the small cubicle to the mayor’s office, the work of each woman is a ministry, a necessary contribution to building the kingdom of God. Empowered by their love of Christ and responding to the voices of his people, women of the Church are changing the world.
Let’s learn how. Please join our conversation.
