The dignity of every human being is inviolable – it is within us and given by God, no one else. Equality is what women continue to strive for from generation to generation. The Catholic Women’s Council invites you to discover what dignity and equality mean to you as a Catholic, and how our skills, talents and expertise as women should be used to benefit the Church into the future.

Thank you to all who submitted responses to our international survey of Catholic women. The survey was available in eight languages (Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, English, German, Polish, French and Mandarin) and we had more than 19,500 responses from 104 countries. The survey is now closed and the data is being analysed for submission to the Vatican and as a resource for further research, information and awareness-raising. All findings and submissions will be made public as and when they are available.
