Cardinal Bertoni: The Dignity of Women

"Concrete support must be given to the right of girls and women to study and achieve professional qualifications, using appropriate positive laws to combat all forms of unjust exploitation of the female sex and the shameful commercialization of the female body. It is incumbent upon us to decry the intolerable scandal of a certain kind of sexual tourism which humiliates women, reducing them to a situation of practical slavery."

~ Cardinal Bertone, Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone S.D.B. to Francesco Frangiallisecretary general of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), September 27, 2007.
