The new leaders

Nuns have always been on the front line. However, what is new today is that they are stepping forward as leaders to bring about change in this world in crisis. In addition, they are pledging to take on a central role as spokespersons for the most marginalised communities, and reclaiming their vast experience that they are making available.

In this issue of Women Church World we report on the #NewLeaders campaign, which was launched recently by the International Union of Superior Generals. This is a large-scale initiative, the aim of which is clearly evident in the title of the first video, Leadership for change.
