I started this blog to help women like myself.
Women who may not have always felt like they fit within the Church, or fit the image of a “good Catholic woman.”
Women who have been attracted to feminism, but who want to know how to reconcile it with their Catholic faith.
Women who have a sense that the strength, power, and influence of women is untapped — both in the Church and in the world.
Are you bored of Catholic resources talking about the feminine genius
… but only in terms of women getting pregnant?
Are you frustrated with hearing people talk about chastity and NFP
…as if it’s blissful and full of frolicking fun?
When the weather gets warmer, who doesn’t love refreshing their closet, or picking up a cute new accessory to spice up your home?
You may never have considered where those items are from, but you should. Our friend Claire over at The Catholic Feminist podcast recently chatted with Erin Mackey from Catholic Relief Services all about why ethical trade matters, and the difference you can make by putting your purchasing power to good use.
To get you started, we’ve rounded up these summer essentials – all from CRS vetted shops that are ethical trade!
Shopping never felt so good… 🙂
