In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast, I'm joined by the incredible Dr. Abigail Favale to talk about feminism, gender identity, and the Catholic Church.
Abigail has written a number of fantastic articles at the Church Life Journal on these very topics and unpacks them here, for us, brilliantly. We tackle the ideas of masculinity and femininity as expressed by Pope St. John Paul II, how a Catholic should understand feminism, and how becoming a mother (and a Catholic) changed Abigail's perspective on abortion.
It's an incredible, in-depth conversation. You're going to love it, and learn a lot too. After listening, you're have a good idea of how to understand and articulate Catholic views on these important, timely topics.
For more from Abigail check out her conversion story Into the Deep: An Unlikely Catholic Conversion.
