From our archives, 2003.

In 2013, America published the first issue of a Jesuit journal written and edited entirely by women. In that groundbreaking issue, the editors announced that America would continue to make the role of women in the life of the church a top editorial priority. But soon after making that commitment in 2013, we encountered a big problem. When our editors started to look for data about what Catholic women think about various issues, we could not find any. No such survey had ever been done.
