February 2012: The Vatican officially censures American nuns, putting them under the supervision of conservative bishops. The Vatican’s message is clear: Feminism is simply incompatible with Catholicism, and if you want to remain a part of the Church, you must abandon your “radical” ideology. The women refuse to back down. Follow Sisters Simone Campbell, Chris Schenk, and Jean Hughes as they struggle for equality and ultimately winning the heart of Pope Francis. These sisters are transforming American politics — and the Church itself.
