From The American Prospect: If the Pope Wanted to Help the Poor, He’d Be a Feminist
by Adele M. Stan
The Church remains intransigent on virtually any vestige of equality for women. Ask any honest director of a non-governmental organization that focuses on economic development, and she’ll tell you that fundamental to economic progress for all people is the empowerment of women. When women can read, their families thrive; when they can control their own fertility the society benefits economically. In places where women lead throughout society, even at the micro-level (as in running small businesses), standards of living increase for all.
It's time for the RCC to ORDAIN WOMEN and to move women into leadership roles as bishops, cardinals and popes. To continue the power structures which force women into subordinate roles in our church is to diminish all of humanity.
