Some of you may have heard about the Washington DC rally, hosted by Women Speak for Themselves held yesterday. While I did not have the luxury of attending, I really support this message, so I just wanted to add a few related articles that I came across in the aftermath of the event.
- From Washington Post “On Faith”: “Five Reasons Why Women Care about the HHS Contraception Mandate” by Helen Alvare and Meg McDonnell
- From the National Catholic Register: “Meet the Bold New Feminists” by Sue Ellen Browder
- From the Weekly Standard: “Women Hold Protest of HHS Mandate” in Washington by Maria Santos
By the way, you can still sign the letter to President Obama voicing your objection to the mandate.
In other news, you may be wondering why I’ve not posted anything yet on Pope Francis’ remarks regarding the need for a deeper theology of women in the church. I have a piece that I’ve written and when it breaks online, I’ll let you know. Maybe this Sunday night/Monday morning. We’ll see when. I’ll also be discussing it on a future Among Women podcast.
