When Bishops Listened to Women: The 'Women's Pastoral' 12 Years Later
Mary Ann Hinsdale, an associate professor of theology at Boston College, convenes a panel as part of the Envisioning the Church Women Want conference. The panel includes Pheme Perkins, professor of theology at Boston College; Bishop Matthew Clark of Rochester, New York; and Dr. Susan Muto from the Epiphany Academy of Formative Spirituality. Members of the "women’s pastoral" committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (1988-1994) recall their experience and reflect on the "church women (and men) want" for the 21st century.
