Speaking Against Patriarchy: Women in the Catholic School System (1995)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1995 - Vol. 11, No. 4

In a previous article entitled "Criticizing the Pope: A Catholic Teacher's Experience" (Wedf, Fall 1994), the author outlined the successful arbitration case she fought against the Metropolitan Separate School Board in Toronto over her removal in 1992 as a teacher of religion. For several years, she had been an outspoken critic of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, specifically on issues related to women and sexual abuse. In September 1994, she was restored to teaching religion.

The repercussions of her case extended far beyond a high school classroom. They involved many issues—legal, educational, theological and political. In this article, she explains these issues in the context of what is happening in the global Catholic community at the present time.
