The hosts of The Catholic View for Women

In response to many of the “toxic” TV shows targeting women, EWTN is launching a highly-anticipated new program called “The Catholic View for Women,” aimed at addressing issues relevant to today's woman from a Church-based perspective.

The series – with the first show kicking off Friday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET – will be hosted by author and broadcast journalist Teresa Tomeo, Executive Director of Priests for Life Janet Morana and Astrid Bennett Gutierrez, who is the Executive Director of Los Angeles Pregnancy Services and Vice President of Hispanics for Life and Human Rights.

Topics for the first round of shows will include vocations, spirituality, feminism, and the Church’s teaching on contraception, among others.

“The Catholic View for Women” hosts said on the show's website that the primary goal of the series is to “reach fallen away Catholic women” like they used to be and to “show them the beauty of the faith Church teaching and how Jesus is the greatest liberator of women and the greatest source of our dignity.”

Show hosts also said the intent of the program is to reach Catholic women “who have never been exposed to the fullness of the faith because of poor Catechesis” and to “meet women where they are at in their walk with the Lord and the Church.”

The experts said they also hope the series will assist parents “in their efforts to raise their daughters as faith-filled Catholic women” and “offer a positive, relevant, and fun alternative to today’s toxic TV shows targeting women.”
