The Pope paid a visit to Australian Rosemarie Goldie, now 92, the first woman to hold a major position in the Vatican. (first undersecretary of the Pontifical Council for the Laity.)

Rosemarie was the witness to remarkable changes at the time of Council:

Via Catholic Online:

"Goldie is the Roman Curia's human microchip memory on the development of the lay apostolate. One of her tasks (which include translating documents into English from Italian, French, Spanish and even Portuguese) is ordering the Laity Council's archives to make them accessible.

She is also completing a book on the development of the lay apostolate in the past 40 years. Presumably, it will recount how she was caught up in this work when it seemed she was destined to be an academic, and how, because she was the first woman to be an Under-Secretary of a Vatican office, she also became the first full-time woman teacher in a pontifical university in Rome, although without any formal qualifications in theology."


Goldie's memoir "From a Roman Window" was published in 1998. It seems to be out of print but I for one, would love to hunt around and find a copy.
