           In March 2002 a group of African theologians, all women, met with Margaret Farley, RSM, at the Yale School of Divinity to discuss the suffering caused by the HIV and AIDS pandemic in Africa. They concluded that there was a need for women to gather in Africa in order to shatter the silence of shame and fear that surrounds the pandemic.
