.- The Pontifical Council for the Laity will organize a conference on February 7-9, 2008, entitled, “Woman and Man: The Totality of what is Human,” as part of the 20th anniversary of John Paul II’s Apostolic Letter on the dignity and vocation of women, Mulieres Dignitatem.

The event will take place in Rome and will include over 250 participants. It will focus on the late Pope’s historic letter, which is “a cornerstone of Pontifical teaching,” as “it was the first pontifical document to especially address the theme of women,” said Rocio Figueroa, an official of the Council for the Laity.

Representatives of various bishops’ conferences, as well as leaders of ecclesial movements that promote the role of women in the Church, are expected to attend.

Figueroa also encouraged the “participation of women from all five continents.”  The conference will feature a panel discussion on “Christianity and the promotion of women,” as well as debates on the promotion of women in Asia, the role of women in the transmission of the faith in Africa, the dignity of women “in the technological and consumerist society of North America,” and the comprehensive formation of women in Latin America.
