In 1995, Pope John Paul II started a conversation.You've probably heard of it - his Letter to Women.

Now, over twenty years later, Chloe Langr is continuing that conversation. Chloe runs the Letters to Women podcast, and she invited me to chat with her for the latest episode "

A Letter to the Woman Wondering about Feminism."

A Letter to the Woman Wondering about Feminism -- podcast episode --

Here's a few of the things we talked about in this episode:

  • Why feminism always resonated with me, wanting to be "part of the boys club," and how it led me to start FemCatholic
  • Mythbusting on what it means to be a "good catholic woman"
  • Differences between modern secular feminists and catholic feminists - what modern feminists get right about equality, and the advantage catholic feminists have
  • Should you call yourself a feminist, or does "catholic" already cover everything?
  • Virginity and it's history of empowering women
  • Being a new mom myself, I talk about why feminism needs to support moms in the culture and the workplace
  • NFP and birth control (from a feminist perspective, of course ?)
  • Seeing woman's body as a burden - even in marriage
  • What you need to know about how modern feminism has impacted men - and what to do about it
  • What I want to tell you if you disagree with church teaching
