"It follows Pope Francis' call of recognizing the role of women. It goes even further because it reflects a call of our time, of giving women the role and place they deserve.” 

The Vatican is calling on women to share their concerns, hopes and experiences by posting a short video or even a picture on social media, under the hashtag, #Lifeofwomen.

"We are seeing a transformation that's having a direct affect on women and culture, so the Council thought that the best way for females to share this experience is through images and story telling.”

In a meeting to be held in February, some of the most  moving accounts will be shared with Bishops and Cardinals, to further the discussion of womanhood in the 21st century.
