Pontifical Council for Culture....and women priests

The Pontifical Council for Culture in its preparation document for the Plenary Assembly said that they would not discuss women's ordination and dismissed it as a subject with the unsubstantiated claim that "according to statistics, it is not something that women want."
 
This may be true of some parts of the Church that have other pressing issues, but I thought that survey after survey in Europe and North America has found that a majority of people are in favor of women's ordination.

    What evidence have they got that women are not interested in being a priest? The fact that so many women have already been ordained, even though this ends up with their excommunication from the Church, shows that at least some people are concerned about this question. Also what about all those faithful women who work in and for the Church but would love to be ordained if this was possible. The Church does not even bother to examine their vocational call. Then we have to think about all those women who are taking degrees in Theology, no doubt many of them are interested in the question of women's ministry in the Church.
