Colette Joyce speaks on Radio World Service

Three women share their experience of breaking into male leadership roles in the different Faiths

Colette Joyce our Pastoral Outreach Coordinator

Special needs dentist Chandrika Joshi who is one of only a handful of female Hindu priests.
Female Imam Halima Krausen who keeps a deliberately low profile about her role and Colette Joyce, who has spent the last 30 years believing that she has a vocation to be a Catholic priest.
Three women who are trying to break into what is a traditionally male domain. Join Jane Little as she finds out just how these women are doing it and what their motivation is. To mark the centenary of International Women's Day she hears their stories and asks whether a silent revolution is underway allowing women to conquer holy ground.
