After backlash over a video featuring an attractive 50-year-old Italian actress, the Vatican has issued a new video to promote their "life of women" campaign.
The new "You Don't Own Me" video features lip-syncing to the 1964 Leslie Gore song by the same name by a couple of dozen persons, many of whom appear to be women. It has been translated into 6,900 languages. It drew instant praise from Phyllis Zagano, of Hofstra University, who told the National Catholic Reporter that this time the Vatican is sending the right message.
"These are real women, not some bleached blond bimbo with pumped up lips. The outside isn't important. It's what's inside that makes a woman, namely, a uterus and ovaries. Where rosaries don't belong, I might add."
