Fiorella Nash is one of the leading modern Catholic feminist voices in the Church today. As I read through her recent book, The Abolition of Woman: How Radical Feminism is Betraying Women, I was overwhelmed by her mastery of the work – her vast research into feminism, the abortion industry, the fertility industry, and gendercide issues.
Fiorella’s faith and understanding of human nature, social responsibility, and inviolable human rights clearly determine her pro-life convictions. I challenged Fiorella on how feminism can possibly reconcile with the pro-life stance, and what is left, if anything to “reclaim” of the feminism of ages past!
Author and bioethicist Fiorella Nash joins me on The Dignity of Women podcast. Fiorella is a writer and bioethicist in the United Kingdom with over ten years’ experience researching life issues from a feminist perspective.
She speaks often at international conferences and has appeared on radio and in print discussing abortion, gendercide, maternal health and commercial surrogacy. She is also an award-winning novelist and has published numerous books under the nom-de-plume Fiorella De Maria, including Poor Banished Children, Do No Harm, and We’ll Never Tell Them.
Whilst women in some parts of the world were struggling with the spectre of honour killings and child marriage, female members of staff railed against any use of the word “man” in the liturgy and talked about men as though they had nothing better to do than concoct wicked plots against female emancipation.”
