Celia Wexler explores women’s struggles to be feminist and Catholic | National Catholic Reporter Book Review

CATHOLIC WOMEN CONFRONT THEIR CHURCH: STORIES OF HURT AND HOPE

By Celia Viggo Wexler Published by Rowman & Littlefield, 216 pages, $34

 

The central question explored in Celia Viggo Wexler‘s engaging and thought-provoking book is one that no doubt many millions of women have struggled with: Is it possible for a woman to be both a feminist and a Catholic?

For Wexler, an award-winning journalist and Huffington Post blogger, this is not an academic question. She had reached a juncture in which she had to “find a way to stay Catholic that made sense to me and respected my intellect and feminism, or I would have to leave the church.”
