ncrease in women religious attracts attention

When the Office for Vocations in England and Wales recently released figures showing that the number of women entering religious life has tripled since 2009 (from 15 to 45 in England and Wales), the British media paid close attention. The story of  the rise in entrants garnered coverage from such media giants as the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), London’s Guardian newspaper, and the Telegraph.

Theodora Hawksley, a young scholar who joined the Congregation of Jesus, was featured by the BBC, and she also published an article about her reasons for entering religious life.
