Pope Francis Admits Church's History of Male Domination

In a new document ¬†released Tuesday, Pope Francis acknowledged "male domination" within the Catholic Church's history ‚ÄĒ and said things need to change.¬† The Pope ¬†addressed "all Christian young people" in the letter, which is a follow-up to a bishops meeting in October about the role of youth in the church.

He wrote that women's issues need to be taken seriously, though he did clarify that the church can't accept "everything some feminist groups propose."  The document also mentions  various forms of abuse and violence, and asks younger generations not to leave Catholicism because of recent sex abuse scandals.  In the U.S., the church has faced multiple  state and federal  investigations into its handling of abuse complaints.

Just  last week , Pope Francis issued  new legislation  meant to provide a "safe environment" for children and vulnerable adults, requiring Vatican employees to report sexual abuse immediately.

Media outlets  point out that while the new document does call for changes and improvements in some areas, it doesn't outline specific steps to getting there.
