Moving well beyond the role of such organizations as the Womena€™s Ordination Conference, this study also addresses the role of international and local groups. In an effort to debunk a number of misperceptions about the movement, from its date of origin to its demographic profile, Daigler explores a vast array of topics. Starting with the movementa€™s historical background from the early American period through the early twentieth century to Vatican II and afterward, she considers the role of women (especially Catholicisma€™s more religious adherents) in the movementa€™s evolution, the organization of the ordination movement in the United States, the role and response of clergy and Vatican teachings, the reality of international influences on the U.S. movement, and the full range of challengesa€”past and presenta€”to the ordination movement.
