Women in the Vatican

Frauen im Vatikan

It has become something of a cliché nowadays to describe the Vatican as a state exclusively for priests and men. Of the closest members of the pope's staff, around 15 percent are currently women and their numbers are increasing. Women in the Vatican protect the historical treasures of the church, they help determine if someone should be canonised, they oversee the restoration work taking place in St. Peter's and, for the last few years at least, have held executive positions in the governing body of the church.

This documentary shows nine miniature portraits of exemplary women working for the pope and his church who are involved in making decisions which affect the fate of this microstate.
