White smoke, new pope

The wait (and excessive media coverage- but that’s another post) is over.  Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina has been elected pope.  This BBC profile of the new pope describes him as “orthodox on sexual matters but strong on social justice”.  I see that as a big contradiction.  Women’s economic status, especially in poor countries, is affected by the lack of access to contraceptives and their position in society.WomenEconomicInequalitySM
