Barbara Ferraro and Patricia Hussey discuss their book, “No Turning Back.” They begin by explaining that they are both former nuns in the Catholic Church. Ferraro talks about the Church’s taking away of individuality, spirit, femininity, and emotions from nuns. They discuss how Pope John XXIII changed the way nuns lived after the Vatican II council. They describe how they put an ad in the New York Times advocating women’s rights. They talk about how Catholics respect traditions that most people see as archaic. They end the interview by describing problems with the Church and how the pope should not be seen as infallible.
