Priest Abuse: The Difference Women Can Make / National Catholic Reporter

National Catholic Reporter’s Robert McClory suggests that two cases of clergy sexual abuse he reviews in his story show that, “if in the past, women had held authoritative positions in dioceses allowing them to examine charges regarding sex abuse and if more women were involved now in review boards and given access to evidence of clerical misconduct, the heinous careers of many people like Kownacki could have been interrupted at an early stage and many children spared the horror of abuse.’ McClory says these cases also suggest, ‘that clericalism is so deeply entrenched in many members of the clergy that they refuse to see the evidence of crime when it is right before their eyes.’”
