'We are all nuns today'

Mary E. Hunt, co-founder and co-director of the Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics and Ritual (WATER) in Silver Spring, Maryland, writes that when it comes to the Vatican’s crackdown on women religious, I believe it’s time to declare that for the purpose of this struggle: we are all nuns.

The effort to rein in LCWR is meant as much to scare the rest of us into line as to corral the nuns. I can say with con?dence that it won’t work.
