Female leadership 'needed in the church' Australian Archbishop Coleridge said


"The Archbishop also said there was a need for more women to be making executive decisions at the top of the Catholic Church in Australia.
"If the Catholic Church says it cannot ordain women we are correspondingly obliged to explore ways in which women can exercise genuine responsibility in the decision-making processes at the highest level," Archbishop Coleridge said.
Catholics for Renewal president Mr Peter Johnstone said he believed one could argue women would have spoken up about allegations of abuse earlier."


"When you exclude the people who have had experience in bringing up children...you are not going to get it right," he said.
