While Catholic teaching states that men and women were both created equally in the image of God, faith communities and leaders are not immune from the sins of the world - including sexism. Join Samantha Povlock, Founder of FemCatholic, and Professor and theologian Christine Falk Dalessio, Ph.D., for a candid and insightful conversation on the ways sexism can show up in communities of faith, what the Catholic Church actually teaches, and how we can better fulfill the mission to live as Jesus intended.
