Programme for Season Four - Summer 2018

1. 'Me Too': the Dignity of Women

Wednesday 9 May 2018, led by Fr Richard Ounsworth OP   

Revelations in high places about the abusive treatment of women reveal a dark side to our supposedly 'liberated' and 'enlightened' age. 

  • How does the Church view women?
  • Is it part of the problem or part of the solution? 

Fr Richard Ounsworth OP will lead an exploration of the role and dignity of women in the Catholic tradition from a 21st-century perspective.
Then we look forward to the usual stimulating exchange of views, questions and personal experience from participants.

About the Dominican Friars

* The Dominican Friars are a religious order in the Catholic church. They specialise in the intellectual apostolate, and their high level of training allows them to engage and debate with a wide range of viewpoints and at many levels. As the 'Order of Preachers' they have a strong tradition of engaging preaching and are much sought-after as speakers. Also known as the 'Blackfriars', the area of the same name in London is called after the great Dominican priory which once stood there.
