Women and the Vatican
Full Product Description
Approaching Vatican documents on women from a historical perspective, Helman explains the context of the documents those events in the world that may have influenced the Vatican to address certain issues and the main points of each document. She notes that "reading official documents firsthand is important for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, feminism, sexuality, women's ordination and/or the Church's position on abortion/contraception. However, my goal is to create as neutral of an anthology as possible."
Collected together in this form, these documents are accessible to a wide range of people and available for a broad range of college classes from ethics to theology and religion, to sexuality to women's studies in religion, and to the church at large.
Documents included are Mulierus dignitatem, Inter insigniores, Pacem in terris, Humane vitae, On the Collaboration of Men and Women, Familiaris consortio, Persona humana, Ordinatio sacerdotales, Evangelium vitae, Deus caritas est, Address of Pope Paul VI to Women, Letter of Pope John Paul II to Women, Intervention by The Holy See at the 61st General Assembly of the UN on Women, Women Bear an Effective Witness to Faith, and Gaudium et spes.
Women and the Vatican by I Helman was published by Alban Books Ltd in February 2012. The ISBN for Women and the Vatican is 9781570759673.

Women and the VaticanJohn Irvine, via The Good Book Stall
This book is an exploration of official documents detailing the Catholic Church’s teaching on the role of women in society. It covers the last fifty years in the light of evolving feminism and the changing attitudes towards sex, marriage and family ethics. It looks particularly at a woman’s role in the family, in the workplace and in the life and work of the church and how a woman finds fulfilment within these spheres. Helman remains as far as possible non-judgmental, restricting herself to giving a summary of official pronouncements, and her comments are on the whole fair and challenging. She does, however, call for women’s opinions to be recognised in a more official capacity. This book is valuable reading not only for Catholic feminists but for all those who work in the fields of higher education and pastoral ministry.
