Roman Catholic women led by former Irish president Mary McAleese demanded a greater decision-making role for women in the Church Thursday, urging Pope Francis to tear down its "walls of misogyny".McAleese was the key speaker at a symposium of Catholic women called "Why Women Matter," attended by hundreds of people and followed by many others around the world via web-streaming.The Church teaches that women cannot be ordained priests because Jesus chose only men as his apostles.Many in the audience were nuns, who cheered on the speakers who demanded more rights for women in the Church.
