Catholic Feminism

A website has been brought to our attention. It is based on the chapter in The Ratzinger Report entitled 'Feminism in the Convent'. It basically offers a bibliography to enhance the orthodox argument against feminist theology and could prove a good resource.

The link is as follows:

Guys,
I read something recently that struck me as so true -
there has not been a "feminist" movement in the last 40 years - there has been a MASCULINIST movement. Men haven't become more emotional, more caring, more compassionate. They haven't taken on the qualities of women - women have taken on the qualities of men, fighting more, swearing more, etc.
And that is a very bad thing.
And no, I'm not anti-man. In fact, I love them so much I married one.
;)

That Chapter in 'The Ratzinger Report' is excellent, as is the rest of it.

You ought to know that radical feminism is FAR different from the liberal feminism to which many (if not most) Catholic feminists subscribe.

It is radical feminism of which Pope Benedict speaks, and it is somewhat outdated. The Catholic feminists I know subscribe to a brand of feminism that is pro-equality, pro-family, pro-life, and anti-violence. I don't think that's something to hate.

Radical feminism is somewhat outdated. The Catholic feminists I know are liberal feminists with their own brand of feminism -- they are pro-equality, pro-family, pro-life, and anti-violence. Is that really something against which you want to speak out?
