|Vatican||SPEAKERS CALL FOR NEW CHRISTIAN FEMINISM FOR THIRD MILLENNIUM|
A new Christian feminism for the new millennium should promote cooperation between women and men and acknowledge the importance of the family, said speakers at a conference in Rome.
The chief failure of feminism in the past was that it focused only on politics and society, ``as if the feminine condition had nothing to do with the family,'' said Cardinal Alfonso Lopez Trujillo, president of the Pontifical Council for the Family.
The cardinal was among the speakers at a conference last weekend on ``A new feminism for a new millennium,'' sponsored by the Legionaries of Christ.
