Sisterhood (Ainsi soient-elles)

Sisterhood (Ainsi soient-elles)

The Soeurs Auxiliatrices du Québec (Helper Nuns of Quebec), are a small order of feminist and politically engaged Catholic nuns based in Montreal. They believe in God but not in a Church dominated by men.

The sisters, who for many years campaigned for women’s rights, social justice and international solidarity, are now facing the disappearance of their religious order as their own lives are drawing to a close. A handful of them, determined, generous and irresistible, join together to talk about the struggle against patriarchy and the legacy they want to leave.
