with Fatima Measham
Women are present throughout the Gospels. They were present at every key point of Jesus’ life, even at the tomb.
Since the Royal Commission, there has been a greater recognition of the role that women must play in the Church, but they have always been on the front line, sometimes in conflict with priests and bishops. Can the model of service and leadership by these “troublesome” Catholic women offer a better vision of the Church? How can we write them back into our stories?
Fatima Measham, a consulting editor and regular columnist at Eureka Street, also hosts the ChatterSquare podcast, which focuses on social change. She writes extensively on identity, social justice and the environment, and has been published by The Guardian, Meanjin and Right Now. She also appears regularly at writers’ festivals and on radio to speak about politics and culture.
