The Catholic Church, Oppressor of Women?
Is this concern a legitimate one or one rooted in misunderstandings of anthropology? After all, Pope St. John Paul II apologized in his 1995 Letter to Women for occasions “when members of the church have reflected more the attitudes of the culture than the kind of culture that Christianity is supposed to generate in the world.” Using the Letter to Women as a point of departure, Simone Rizkallah will take up this vexed question and help us understand whether the Church is the greatest oppressor, or greatest liberator, of women in history.
