Marilyn Hatton is a woman of faith, wife, mother and grandmother and a long term advocate for full equality for women and all in the Catholic Church. She began this work as a member of Women and the Australian Church and then co-ordinator of Ordination of Catholic Women Inc. Marilyn continues to work for full equality for all in the Catholic Church and pursues this through active membership of a number of reform groups.
Marilyn’s tertiary background: R.N, B.App.Sci., M.Litt.Gender Studies (ANU) and past professional roles, including ACT Women’s Health Adviser, influence her advocacy. In September 2018, she was privileged to accept an Edna Ryan award at Sydney Trades Hall for Leading Feminist Changes in the Public Sphere. Marilyn regularly contributes articles highlighting aspects of clericalism to John Menadue’s blogsite Pearls and Irritations and to the National Council of Priests’ quarterly magazine The SWAG. In 2018 she presented a paper to the National Council of Priests National Conference.
Marilyn’s work is driven by her desire to pass on the gift of faith to future generations and have Christ’s gospel message of love and justice active and present in the public sphere and in our world.
