And women pay tremendous costs for this bias, in time, money, and often with their lives. Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez inv

This has been most acutely felt in the Roman Catholic Church, because the long-standing tradition of the Church has always seen women as incapable of ordination, and contemporary Papal encyclicals continue to support that position. Should such a tradition continue to be an obstacle to a change that is seen as desirable by so many groups? Is the push for this change
