Smart, Sophisticated, Faithful and Definitely not Oppressed!

Last edited 23rd April 2010

Did you see Maureen Dowd’s New York Times column on the weekend? She wrote about having had tea with a group of intelligent and sophisticated Muslim women.  Walking away from the conversation she found herself wondering “how could such spirited women, smart and successful on every other level, acquiesce in their own subordination?”  She came to this stunning conclusion.  “As a Catholic woman, I was doing the same thing.” “I remained part of an autocratic society that repressed women and ignored their progress in the secular world.”

‘Silence becomes music. It has grace’

Last edited 13th April 2010

Michael Whyte’s documentary film No Greater Love is a tender and sympathetic account of the daily routines of the Carmelite nuns who live at the monastery of the Holy Trinity in north Kensington. Apart from two periods of recreation, the Sisters are silent throughout the day. They rarely leave the purpose-built Victorian compound except for visits to the dentist or doctor, and high walls around the grounds protect them from the distractions of trendy Notting Hill.
