Women's Day to Be Celebrated at Vatican, Sister Simone Campbell Will Speak

The theme of this year’s 4th congress of “Voices of Faith” narratives is: “Stir the Waters: Make the Impossible Possible.” “Women’s voices must be heard if peace is to be restored and sustained,” explains a note presenting the event. The speakers will suggest ideas to give women more responsibilities in the Church.

"American Religious Simone Campbell, director of “Nuns on the bus,” initiative for immigrants, has worked for the poor and for marginalized individuals as a lawyer of the defense and launched the “Faithful Budget”. At the head of the NETWORK organization, she has exerted pressure in favor of Federal policies and laws that foster economic and social justice. She was regarded as a key actor to convince Congress to adopt the law on affordable care."
