A fledgling #NunsToo movement has entered the public sphere while a much disparaged global summit on child sex abuse has taken place at the Vatican. Here in Australia, Cardinal Pell has been convicted for child abuse - it's been a tumultuous fe weeks for Catholics internationally.
Dr Kathleen McPhillips, a leader with the Interdisciplinary Trauma Research Network and the Vice-President of the Australian Association for the Study of Religion joins us to discuss the issues.
We also hear from Doris Wagner of #NunsToo and Virginia Saldanha, a leader and activist with the Ecclesia of Women in Asia on the dynamics of spiritual abuse.
