Abstract: Feminist theology striving for women’s liberation in the world and in the Church very often raises an issue of the hierarchy of the Church. This is because women’s discrimination in the Church is most evident in the perspective of the hierarchy. It seems that the two most important demands to improve the position of women in the Church and to achieve equality of all members of the Church are a change of perception of ecclesiastical offices (as a service, not domination) and the possibility of women’s ordination. These demands are interrelated. In this paper I will present in greater detail the discussion about the second demand. Arguments for and against ordination of women will be set forth. I will also pay attention to another essential issue for the women’s liberation: it is a language through which we describe the mystery of God. According to the feminist theologians only inclusive language opens the way to perceive women as close to God as men. Moreover, the paper shows feminist theology as a successor of some conciliar conceptions of the Church and also in a certain sense as a fruit of the Second Vatican Council.
