THE WOMEN THE VATICAN COULDN'T SILENCE!

Why does the Catholic Church continue to silence women in 2019? 

Women make up more than half the membership of the Catholic Church, so why aren't they invited to sit alongside men when it comes to making decisions that will ultimately affect them, their children, their families? 

We are Church Ireland, Voices of Faith and the School of Religion in Trinity College present two leading Catholic women in a public conversation to overcome the silence on issues that affect Catholics today and must be openly discussed for the future of an inclusive, egalitarian and harmonious Church. 

Former Irish President Mary McAleese and feminist nun Sister Joan Chittister have both experienced attempts by the Catholic hierarchy to silence their voices. In this conversation, for the first time ever, these two courageous women come together to discuss their views on the many issues besetting our Church today and the possible solutions for change.
