Editors of Vatican-backed women’s magazine resign
March 26, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: The editor and the entire editorial board of a Vatican-sponsored women’s magazine have resigned, claiming that the effort faced a hostile atmosphere. Women-Church-World had been established in 2016, with editor Lucetta Scaraffia saying that the publication would reflect the “hidden revolution” in attitudes toward women. But in resigning, the editors of the magazine—which was published by L’Osservatore Romano, complained: “It seems to us that a vital initiative is being reduced to silence, to return to the antiquated and arid method of the top-down selection, under direct male control, of women who are perceived as being reliable.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
