In this March 4, 2013 file photo Italian Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi waves to reporters as he arrives for a meeting, at the Vatican. A new Vatican initiative to actually listen to women hit a sour note before it even got off the ground when an Internet promotional video featuring a sexy blonde was so ridiculed that it was quickly taken down. But the initiative is going ahead, and an inaugural meeting this week will study women's issues in ways that are utterly new for the Holy See. The latest initiative comes courtesy of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, an academic who quotes Nietzsche as easily as Amy Winehouse and has no fear of courting controversy as he raises the Vatican profile in sport, art and even atheist circles at the helm of the Vatican's culture ministry.
