Following Pope Francis' establishment of a commission to study the ordination of women deacons, this conference gathers speakers from Africa, Asia, and Latin America to address—more broadly—women's leadership in the Catholic Church, with a special emphasis on the global South. Topics include women's use of Scripture, the ecclesiological basis for women in Church leadership, and the leadership roles that women are already exercising in grassroots church communities, faith-based social movements, and theological education.
This gathering is the 10th annual World Catholicism Week organized by the Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology.

We also have a special video message to share at the conference from Marguerite Barankitse; based in Kigali, Rwanda, she is the founding president of the Maison Shalom network for orphans of Burundi's civil war and, for this work, the inaugural recipient of the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity.
