Polls find that most Catholics in the United States are at odds with their Church when it comes to the role of women.



2009 Pew study found that of 39 percent of young adults who leave the Catholic Church, and who are now unaffiliated with a religion, said they were “unhappy with the way religion treated women.”
In a separate study last year, nearly 70 percent of US Catholics said they believe women should be ordained to the priesthood.
