While the highest clergymen met at the Vatican to evaluate the Catholic Churches’ current affairs earlier this month, women were outside protesting against the patriarchy that is the Catholic Church. All these women were devoted Catholics, who supported its religious beliefs, however, these women were seeking to change the Church’s opinion on women.

The Holy See (the Catholic Church and all its encompassing followers) has largely ignored such calls for action on the equality of the sexes.

The Vatican did not speak about the women protesting for the increased rights of women within the Church and essentiality ignored their peaceful demonstration.

The women outside the elite building, home to the Pope and his top clergymen, were upset their claims are still not being taken seriously.

The women chanted: “Knock knock! Who’s there? More than half the Church!” in attempts to prove the importance of women within the Catholic Church. They say this because women make up more than 50% of the Catholic Church’s adherents.

Some members of the Church question why these women are protesting now, but according to an interview with Sister Sally Marie Hodgson conducted by the New York Post, the issue is not a matter of why now, but rather of why not now.

Sister Hodgson claims the treatment of women within the Church should no longer be tolerated. She explicitly points out, that for the first time in Church history non-ordained males are being allowed to vote in the month-long meeting that deals with Church order and policy. Sister Hodgson claims she is not ordained, yet she is a serving Sister and a part of the clergy.
