08/02/2021




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church, has appointed for the first time a woman to the position of undersecretary with the right to vote in the Assembly of Bishops. The appointment of 52-year-old French nun Nathalie Becquart to the position is being considered as part of a church desire for women to be more involved in decision-making processes.

The Assembly of Bishops, which discusses controversial issues within the Catholic Church and advises the pope, appointed two undersecretaries yesterday, the BBC reported. One of them was French nun Nathalie Becquart, 52. Thus, for the first time in the Assembly of Bishops, established in 1965, a woman became eligible to vote.

Cardinal Mario Grech, Secretary General of the Assembly of bishops, told Vatican media: "it is a step of great importance. With Becquart's appointment and voting rights a door has been opened, we will see what steps will follow in the future."
