Women In Witness

By Sarah McDonald

A few months back, my NOLACatholic Parenting column in the Clarion Herald was about raising Catholic daughters in today’s #MeToo world.

I lamented the seeming lack of examples of women in today’s world and made a bold call for women to embrace authentic feminism. Needless to say, there were strong reactions … quickly. (You can read the column online here).

What was not included in the column was that, at work, I was already working on a project to celebrate and uphold the dignity of women.

I am never one to present a problem without trying to present an appropriate solution, so, I decided that if society wasn’t going to present good role models for my daughters, the local Catholic Church could. ‘

“Women in Witness” launched on March 13 to rave reviews! Featuring video interviews with women who work in leadership roles within the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the series is an effort to celebrate the professional women working in ministry in service to people of God in New Orleans.

Hopefully, these extraordinary women will inspire young and young at heart women to embrace their faith and their identity as women and bring it into all aspects of their lives.

I am humbled and honored to have a part in introducing these incredible women in witness to the world.

Won’t you join us?
