I found out this week that Jean Vanier was guilty of sexual assault over the span of several decades. If the soft-spoken Frenchman who dedicated his life to the disabled is disgraced, to whom can I aspire?
This past year, the #MeToo movement has taught me that I need the type of self-examination that considers my gender. I need to pay attention to the stories of women and to my own story in a particular way. The church should, too.
