I don’t think that Catholicism is anti woman. I think the Faith glorifies women and I can think of four beautiful examples of great Catholic women off the top of my head.
There’s of course, Our Lady, Saint Catherine of Siena and Saint Theresa of Ávila and Saint Joan of Arc.
Our Lady is a great woman of faith and love and when you look at the Wedding of Cana, she even stood face to face with Our Lord, on behalf of the wedding guests; for His first miracle; even though it was not yet His time to manifest Himself.
Saint Catherine of Siena spoke truth to power even to the Holy Father during the Avignon Papacy and urged reform of the Church and clergy.
Saint Theresa of Ávila stood firm in the face of resistance to reform the Carmelites.
Saint Joan of Arc even led armies to defeat the English on God’s command.
I think the problem with modern day feminism is really a de feminization of women, wrecking of gender roles that God ordained for the mutual supplementary and supportive roles of men and women for the mutual betterment of the other; as well as the demonization of men.
True, there was the problem of sexism. I get it and I understand it.
But, I think modern feminism, in truth and practical reality; leads to a reverse sexism where men are seen as problematic and needless at best and implacably adversarial at worst.
When you look at the historical record of the Greco Roman pagan civilization, women were treated worse than they were in the 1950s. In the pagan Roman family, the father held the power of life and death over his family and women couldn’t even leave the home for a public life, if they wanted to remain respectable.
To claim that feminism stems from the ancient pagan world is a misconception.
