Jane Magazine readers (guilty) will want to check out desi guest writer Jay Dixit’s piece “Why can’t a woman become a priest?” in this month’s issue. Dixit, a Yale grad who has written for the New York Times and Washington Post, follows a group of twelve reformist Christians—the “Roman Catholic Womenpriests” as they become ordained priests—a first for women in the United States.

There are about ten million twentysomething Catholic women in this country, says Dixit. Many are “questioning the church’s teachings on contraception and women’s and gay rights.”
