The 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury report on clergy sex abuse sent shock waves through the U.S. Catholic Church. For Bridget Gramme, the moment felt like a “call to women” to improve the church.

“I’m a cradle Catholic, it’s my community and my identity and my kids go to Catholic schools,” Gramme said. “It’s something we really believe in and the community is so important to us. Maybe it’s time we step it up and not just sit around and let these things happen.”

Gramme is an attorney and member of the advisory board of the Frances G. Harpst Center for Catholic Thought and Culture at the University of San Diego.
