Ecclesia for Equality

“Ecclesia for Equality”, aims to amplify the events, prayers and demonstrations of our member groups in Rome and around the world to highlight where and how women are contributing to the global discernment of the synodal process.

We believe the Catholic Women’s Council can play a unique role in the synod. As a diverse global network for women committed to ensuring the dignity and equality of women, we celebrate the plurality of our voices, our different languages, symbols, and strategies, and walk together on this journey.  

“Ecclesia for Equality” is an extension of the synodal tent: a virtual, physical, and spiritual space where we seek to model synodality authentically and cultivate strength in our interconnection and collaboration. Our events center around the themes of Sacramental Life; Abuse and Violence against Women; Human Rights; Women in Theology; Power, Participation, and Representation; and the Role of Women in the Church.
