Pope John Paul II has established his right to be heard at the Beijing Fourth World Conference on Women this September. In a pastoral letter July 10, he all but apologized to women for the historical lack of appreciation of our "mystery. " He surprised women worldwide by thanking them as "mothers, wives, sisters and daughters as well as women who work. " He even thanked women for our "being," whether or not we have babies. In the past, the Pope has limited his appreciation for women to those functions he approves of. These have been the functions of the family, not the functions of the world.
