Pope: Church's Teaching on Abortion is Unchangeable

Last edited 27th November 2013

In his first apostolic exhortation, “The Joy of the Gospel,” Pope Francis explained that the Church can never change its teaching on abortion, which is part of a broader understanding of human dignity. At the same time, he said in the document released Nov. 26, the Church must increase efforts to “accompany” women in difficult pregnancies.

Muslim Women Break Cultural Barriers to Take up Sport

Last edited 1st December 2013

For tournament participant Ayse Akca it is the first time she has ever played sport. “Now that I've finished school I wanted to get out there and be more active,” she told SBS. As a Muslim Australian, she found an all-women's indoor event less confronting than other options. “Just being close together, having fun with the girls and not having to worry about everything” are part of the appeal, Ms Akca says.

Many Great Leaders of the Church Were and Will Be Women

Last edited 25th November 2013

Secular feminists love to accuse the Catholic Church of chauvinism for refusing to allow women to be ordained as priests. But according to Anna Krohn of the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family that sort of argument is too easy and too simplistic. It also misses the point.

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall… Make Me the Prettiest Girl of All

Last edited 28th October 2013

Woman face the temptation to compete with one another, be the most noticed, the most accepted and the most desired. We can only conquer competition among women if we recognize our own gifts as valuable and rejoice in the gifts of our sisters. We all have different attributes, talents, and gifts. The desire to be known, accepted, and loved is a natural longing. These desires become healthy when we are thankful to God for the gifts and beauty of other women, rather competing with every girl we encounter.

Sweetening the Pill - A Young Woman Dissolves the Sugar Coating on the Contraceptive Pill

Last edited 17th October 2013

Holly Grigg-Spall is a young woman who calls herself a feminist but who is deeply unpopular with some of the sisterhood right now. English, 30-ish, married to an American and living in California, she has written a book criticising the contraceptive pill. Actually, Sweetening the Pill: Or How We Got Hooked On Hormonal Birth Control is more than critical; it is a sweeping polemic against the pill and every form of hormonal contraception.
