Being Out of Order, or How Feminism Rocked the Convent
Kate Raphael speaks with Carole Ganim, author of the book BEING OUT OF ORDER: THE PROPHETIC GENERATION OF NUNS AND SISTERS. They're also joined by former Ursuline nun Lucienne O'Keefe. Audio 21:25
Carole Ganim and Lucienne O'Keefe spent 38 years between them in an Ursuline convent in the 1950s and 60s. They were very happy there, yet by the early seventies, they, like so many other women, had left their order. In this interview they discuss why they grew restless with the idyllic life of the convent, and how they see the future of the Catholic church.
