Defending the Dignity of Women


At a time in which the Italian press seems to be undermining woman of her dignity, we would like to concur with the reflections of Sr. Eugenia Bonetti, a Consolata missionary who is in charge of the “Women and Minors” Office of USMI (Union of Italian Women Major Superiors).

Sr. Eugenia has worked for years to protect and defend women and children from abuse, especially sexual abuse. For more information on this subject, please click onto the Consolata Missions web site (, where visitors can also read an open letter by Sr. Rita Giarretta, an Ursuline Sister who, together with two other members of the same Institute, runs “Ruth House” in Caserta, Italy–a center that welcomes young migrant women (both single and with children) who are facing serious problems.
