“There are countries where women are forbidden to access aid, open a business, or go to school.” Did you know this is still happening in the 21st century?

It’s time to act! In a new Pope Video intention, produced by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, Pope Francis emphasizes the importance that “governments need to commit to eliminate discriminatory laws everywhere and to work toward guaranteeing women’s human rights.”

Let us pray together “that the dignity and worth of women be recognized in every culture, and for an end to the discrimination they face.”
