As a Catholic woman, I am very familiar with the faith-based, charity activities organized by our parish’s Knights of Columbus group.

I must have missed the memo saying it was a chauvinist, religious cabal intent on creating a pontifical version of “A Handmaid’s Tale”. It’s a good thing US senators Kamala Harris...
