The real source of poverty for women in this country is religion, according … a nun? Relax. Sister Joan Chittister is an outspoken liberal – the kind of malcontent nun the media loves to use as a stick against the Catholic Church. And that’s why she’s included in a free e-book compiled by (Kennedy Catholic) Maria Shriver to mark the fifty year anniversary of President Johnson’s “War on Poverty.” Maria Shriver came out with a collection of feminist essays by high profile people, including such leading thinkers as Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria. The idea: that spectacular failure of the War on Poverty, which has failed women in especially spectacular ways – it’s rather like the old joke about The New York Times headline: “Asteroid to destroy Earth; Women, Minorities Hardest Hit.”
