The Catholic Church has finally elected its first pope from the Americas. But could you ever imagine a female pope? Or even women members in the conclave that chooses the pope?
Three Catholic women from across the United States discuss their opinion on the newly ordained Pope Francis, and explain their hopes for the future of women in the Church. Dr. Victoria Fleming is a practicing Catholic from Illinois. Jane Collen, from Westchester, New York, was born and raised Catholic, and now supports her daughter who has been called to the priesthood. Sister Simone Campbell is a member of Nuns on the Bus.
