What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Feminists are the hope of the Catholic Church. I applaud Mary Henold for her scholarship, her insight, and her vision. Catholic and Feminist shows the way that women can take the best of our traditions to shape our church and make it the moral anchor that we need.—Kathleen Kennedy Townsend
