What is Listening to Women?

Women in the Church are longing increasingly for opportunities to express the fullness of God’s presence in them as human beings created in the image and likeness of God.  Catholic women are turning to other faith traditions to find the acceptance, inclusivity, and equality they seek.  But our Church needs women!  Through Listening to Women, we hope to gather the feedback and ideas that can help our Church recover the fullest expression of God’s grace in all women.

Our goal is to create safe spaces where women can talk about the celebrations and challenges they experience as women in the Catholic Church; and to share those reflections with our Bishops to help create opportunities for greater understanding and inclusion in Church life.
