Sisters Indoctrinating Girls
with Radical Feminism
They were all there – the Daughters of Charity, Good Shepherd Sisters, Dominicans, Maryknoll Sisters, Passionists, Salesians, Sisters of Charity, Sisters of Mercy, and others – making the Catholic presence felt and heard on the topic of women empowerment and gender equality. Also present was the Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the UN, Archbishop Bernardito Auza, who delivered an address on advancing the status of women through economics.

Consider the official goal of this year's Commission on the Status of Women (CSW): “to address challenges that affect the implementation and the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.”
Now look at a mission statement of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, who sent a large delegation to the U.N. session on women: “To empower women, youth and persons who are poor or marginalized and strive to change systems of poverty and injustice.”
My point is that the goals and aims of these sisters and the U.N. Commission on Women are essentially the same, turned toward the promotion of the Revolution, not toward teaching Catholic doctrine and converting others to the true Faith. Sister Eileen Reilly, SSND, summarized the target well: “It’s my job to bring my constituency [her students] to the U.N., and to bring the U.N. to my constituency.”
This is what formation in a Catholic women's school or college has become: an indoctrination of young women to become feminists and to imbibe the spirit of the One World Order that promotes a Pan-religion.
What went on
Let me give my readers an idea of what these young women experienced at the CSW meeting. This year was an especially gala affair since they were celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and the Beijing Declaration, one of the most radical blueprints for advancing feminism.
Jane Fonda presented as a role model for girls at the CSW meeting
At the opening ceremony, the girls listened to Lydia Alpizar of the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID): “Today, I celebrate the women – lesbian, black, indigenous, urban and rural women living in conditions of poverty, workers, disabled, trans & intersex people, leaders from different generations … who are transforming our world.” This message resonates with the compassion and inclusion of the Conciliar Church...
Then, there were speeches from U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Hillary Clinton, Melinda Gates, Patricia Arquette, Jane Fonda and many more radical feminists, presented to Catholic young women as models to be followed.
The students actively participated in the six days of workshops, panels and presentations on girls’ human rights, universal girls’ education, violence prevention, etc. They spoke out and moderated panels. In other words, they were not just sitting on the sidelines, but were fully engaged in all parts of the conference.
Empowerment & feminist activism
It is revealing to hear the reactions of the young Catholic women who attended the CSW Conference. Empowerment of women and admiration for the U.N. came up over and over again in their comments.
The School Sisters of Notre Dame brought a large group of faculty and students from Notre Dame of Maryland University. “I learned how effective the U.N. is as an organization, and how it helps women,” said student Jenny Ashwell in her testimony (here and here). “We learned how we can organize in our communities to address issues that face women ... and put pressure on governments ... so we can empower ourselves.”

Hayley Robinson said that she was moved by the serious injustice that women face in the work place where, even in the U.S., they still do not receive equal pay for doing the same job as a man. “Over a lifetime, women are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars,” she said.
Tiyara Townsend summed up her experiences of the week: “I've learned what power I hold as a woman.”
Sara Poirier, 15, Political Science Club president at St. Joseph's run by the Sisters of Mercy, expressed her enthusiasm for the U.N. meeting on the school website: “It was a high-energy, almost electric atmosphere. It was empowering to be a part of a global, collaborative effort with women from around the world who all gathered for a common cause.” That cause was the rights of women.
It goes on and on: empowerment, equality for women, education, ending sexual violence and genital mutilation. This is what inspired the young Catholic women at the U.N.
The official girls’ statement
The Loreto Sisters brought a large delegation of students from three high schools
It begins by stressing the importance that “all girls – regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification, ability, socio-economic status or ethnicity – feel empowered.” So we have another bad fruit: a Catholic girl co-writing and signing a pro-homosexual statement.
The compromise with bad doctrine continues: “We demand an accurate and comprehensive sexual education in all learning environments to ensure that no girl’s sexual health is put at risk.” What is more: “Regardless of cultural and religious stigma, reproductive and mental health must be treated as a right, not a privilege.”
Again, the sisters look on proudly and smile as a Catholic student demands sex education at all levels and, so it appears, the right to contraception. Would a woman's right over her reproductive health also include the right to abortion? The document does not say it explicitly, but it is certainly implied.
Prior to Vatican II the Catholic Church was the main obstacle that kept the Revolution from reaching its final goal, which is the implantation of a One World Order with a Pan-religion at its service.
Since Vatican II, we have seen that the Revolution has succeeded in silencing inside the Church the teaching of the true Catholic doctrine on moral principles and religious dogma. Today, we have teaching sisters from all the major Orders taking their students to the U.N. to be influenced by its errors, imbued with a radical feminism, and permeated with the notion that co-existence with all religions and beliefs is not only possible, but desirable.
This is the orientation the progressivist sisters formed by Vatican II are giving their students with full support from the Church authorities. The concilar Popes themselves have accepted the tenets of the Revolution.

- “ From the CSW website: Established in 1946, the Commission on the Status of Women is the principal global inter-governmental convention exclusively dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women as part of the United Nations. Every year, representatives of member states gather at the United Nations Headquarters to evaluate progress on gender equality, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and advancement of women worldwide.
