This collection of essays celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Woman and Man: One in Christ Jesus, which reported the results of research undertaken by the Australian Catholic Bishops’ Conference in partnership with the Australian Catholic University and the Australian Conference of Leaders of Religious Institutes (now known as Catholic Religious Australia) concerning the participation of women in the Catholic Church in Australia. It brings together a diverse range of perspectives on issues concerning women in the Church and in society, providing food for thought and prayer in the discernment phase of preparation for the Plenary Council of the Catholic Church to be held in 2020. The contributors offer the fruit of their listening to the Spirit as internationally recognised scholars, women in leadership roles, young women, pastoral workers and mothers.
