What happens when women fighting for a voice in the Church turn away from the very things every Catholic holds to be true? Find out in this book! It may scandalize some people, but I'm afraid it's the truth. Donna Steichen has even said that radical feminists have tried to stop the circulation of this book but simply cannot because it's all documented! Steichen shows where radical feminism in the Church has taken us and it's not a pretty place. It truly is a collection of horror stories showing how things went awry. Recommended for anyone who wants to understand how things got to be so bad in women's religious communities and how true feminism in the Church was perverted.

As a Catholic in Nigeria, I have been baffled at how all my cousins who travelled to Europe and the United States to study first in "Catholic" high schools and then in "Catholic" Universities under the "watchful" gaze of hosts of religious have lost their faith. Talking to them about it even puzzled me more, because all of them without exception had had close dealings with priests and religious in their respective schools, people they had a lot of respect for. I found their ideas about the Church's teaching on faith and morals amazing for people who still claim to be Catholic (of course, Sunday Mass is a thing of the past). Amazing, because worse ideas couldn't have come from Jack Chick.
Donna Steichen has solved the puzzle for me in a way no-one else could. I understand only too well now what happened to all my cousins.
You need a tough stomach to finish the book, but when it comes to these issues, ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance could mean the death of a soul.
Thanks Donna!

When I first read this book, I was fascinated and horrified, but in the intervening years much has happened in the Catholic Church, and the generation of feminists about whom Ms Steichen writes is aging and dying. They have not been replaced, as far as I can tell; younger people with similar views simply leave the Church, and there is a new orthodoxy abroad.

If Ms Steichen were to produce an updated version, I would be one of the first to buy it. I would love to know what the current situation really is.

Unlike the first reviewer, I found this book to be an excellent resource for discussing the role of women in the Church today and how people of faith should respond to modern feminism. The Catholic church has, since it's inception, been an advocate for women and their rights. Donna Steichen shows how that history has been hijacked and maligned in recent history. John Paul II calls us all to a "new feminism" not based in the pursuit of power but the pursuit of holiness; this book is a good resource in that pursuit.

Many of us grew up with kind, sweet nuns or stern, strict nuns - - but most of them did not stray from the teachings of the Catholic Church. Sadly, in the wake of 1960's social upheaval of sexual revolution, radical feminism and misinterpretation of Vatican II, an insidious "inside" crew has stepped up to try to destroy the Church. From "New Age" to personal agenda's of left-tilting "nuns", this book names names and exposes motivations.

Donna Steichen is a Catholic author and journalist, who has also been active in the Pro-Life movement. She has also written Prodigal Daughters: Catholic Women Come Home to the Church and Chosen: How Christ Sent Twenty-Three Surprised Converts to Replant His Vineyard.

She wrote in the Introduction to this 1991 book, "This book is a report on the subterranean phenomena of religious feminism as observed over more than a dozen years... As Catholic institutions continued to disintegrate, later reportorial assignments took me deeper into the underworld of religious feminism... the agents of catastrophe ... have done incalculable damage within Church institutions over the past generation... Most of a generation of young Catholics have been lost to the Faith BECAUSE their trusting parents sacrificed to send them to Catholic catechetical programs, schools and colleges. Unless the aberrant activities of Catholic feminists are critically examined... they will continue to destroy the faith of children exposed to their corrosive teaching... this book traces the origins and development of religious feminism within established Catholic communities and organizations... Finally, the book examines the movement's evolving rhetoric, assessing its ideology and overt and covert goals... It is an apostasy to an alien religion."

She asserts, "Feminism appears to be the bait, moral disintegration the hook and the occult the dark and treacherous sea into which the deluded are towed." (Pg.

Donna has bravely uncovered the wolves that infiltrated the Roman Catholic Church after Vatican II left all the doors open. Done in the nineties....I hope Donna Steichen is considering a second book. Do not pass this by....it answers so many questions.
