Woman and man, authentically understood

“In transforming culture so that it supports life, women occupy a place, in thought and action, which is unique and decisive. It depends on them to promote a "new feminism" which rejects the temptation of imitating models of "male domination", in order to acknowledge and affirm the true genius of women in every aspect of the life of society, and overcome all discrimination, violence and exploitation.” Pope St. John Paul II, The Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae), 99

The Siena Symposium for Women, Family, and Culture invites people of all walks of life to deepen their understanding of authentic femininity and masculinity in order to reclaim a culture of life.
