The Women's Ordination Conference is the oldest and largest national organization that works to ordain women as priests, deacons and bishops into the Roman Catholic Church. Founded in 1975, it primarily promotes an agenda with the objective of ordinaining women within the Catholic Church.
The WOC's sister organization, Roman Catholic Womenpriests, has incurred an automatic excommunication by decree of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Leaders of the WOC that have attempted female ordination or who have worked alongside RCW also join them in a state of latae sententiae excommunication.
