EXCERPTS:
"...calling on repressed women worldwide to rise up against male supremacy."
"There is no time to rest until our world achieves wholeness and balance, where all men and women are considered equal and free."

Bridget Mary's Reflection
3 Women Accept Nobel Peace Prize is a historic moment for women working for justice and equality everywhere. They remind us that justice and equality are values that are shared by people of good will, of every faith, and of no faith throughout the world. These three women reflect the hopes of millions and are part of  God's liberating activity at work in transforming sexism in religious institutions and in society. Indeed, something we can all celebrate in our journey toward partnership and equality.
