| Book Description: |
At the heart of Catholicism's resistance to change in the U.S. is the equation of hierarchical authority with traditional gender roles, especially the subordination of women. This book traces the variably confrontational and incremental strategies of advocacy groups as they struggle to reconcile an age-old culture with the onslaughts of modernity.
