CWN Editor's Note: ‘In the end, every feminism ends up being machismo with a skirt,” Pope Francis said following a talk by Linda Ghisoni, undersecretary of the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life (“Communion: act together”). “No. Inviting a woman to speak on the wounds of the Church is inviting the Church to speak about herself, about the wounds she bears. And this, I think, is the step that we should be taking, very decisively: the woman is the image of the Church who is a woman, a bride, a mother.”
