About this title


The true story of two nuns who risked everything to challenge the church on abortion provides a glimpse of the cloistered world of nuns, women's role in the church today, and the place of the church in modern American life. Reprint. NYT.

From Library Journal:

This autobiographical account by two ex-nuns is not so much an exploration of the abortion issue as it is an excellent social history of the American Catholic Church over the last three decades. Ferraro and Hussey (writing here with freelancer O'Reilly) would have welcomed ordination as priests and might have been good ones. Their frustration at the limited pastoral role available to them--Catholicism's "glass ceiling"--led to their eventual rebellion, the abortion question merely serving as a vehicle for their final break with the Church. This largely anecdotal account of two women's journey from sheltered working-class Catholic childhoods to the lofty world of a feminist liberation theology will appeal to Catholic and feminist readers. For religion collections.
