In her Voices of Faith address on 8 March 2018, Dr.Mary MacAleese referred to a call by the Jesuits to redress the situation of women in the RCC. This was resolved at the General Congregation of the Society of Jesus: Decree 14: “Jesuits and the Situation of Women in Church and Civil Society,” General Congregation 34 (1995). The full text is well worth reading. See link below from Boston College:https://jesuitportal.bc.edu/research/documents/1995_decree14gc34/. It reveals very dear intentions, although twenty-three years later the situation does not seem to have changed much for women in the Church!
