We are seeing changes in many spheres, with women finally reaching the top positions of more and more structures and organisations, but still we notice, because it is not yet the norm, and we know that the road was surely full of challenges or there would be many more. At CIDSE, the face of our leadership has changed in just a few years. Perhaps this is even more remarkable because, as a Catholic development and social justice network, women are traditionally present from the grassroots all the way through the very fibre of our organisations, but rarely are they the leaders. Despite their experience, their knowledge, their years of invaluable contribution to development work and to their service to the Church, many women are still overlooked, undervalued, or underestimated.
