An Apology to Women

 |  NCR Today

Yesterday I wrote an article about Sr. Louise Akers' talk at the Call to Action gathering held in Milwaukee over the weekend. Today a received an email from some folks in Australia who, upset by the Akers situation have started a site at which men can apologize ("An Apology to Women") to women "for the continued second class situation that women have to cope with in the Catholic church." I am told, truth be known, the idea originated with a man.

You might want to check it out - and some of you (men) might want to be part of the collective apology.
