The presentation helped me realize how little I truly know about the topic. I know that women are restricted from being clergy, but I’ve never listened to any sort of validation for it. Granted, the one I usually got was “It’s just that way.” I’m very excited to see if there is possibility for change within the Catholic Church as it becomes a far larger religion across the country. It also helped me come up with an order for the paper to flow in, with information at the forefront and arguments following.

The questions afterwards made me validate that this topic is an important issue. I’m also going to work on focusing the exact wording of my question so that my topic becomes easier to understand. With the pointers I received from the questions asked, my topic has become narrower and far easier to execute.
