Seventh-day Adventists to decide in 2015 on women's ordination

Seventh-day Adventists opted for a middle-way approach on the divisive issue of women's ordination on Tuesday, kicking the question to next year's worldwide meeting without taking a firm stance either for or against women's ordination.

Next year's debate will come nearly 100 years after the death of Adventist matriarch Ellen White and could settle decades of disagreement over whether women should be allowed to be ordained in the 18 million-member church she co-founded.

What progress is the church making on women's issues?

Catholic News Agency provides a substantial list of articles relating to women in the church since the beginning of the Francis papacy. The articles are listed in a descending order of occurrence. Does any of it represent progress? It definitely represents both forward and backward steps, which is probably to be expected. Is there a gradual progression within this back-and-forth activity?
