The submission was made in a lengthy article titled "The Washing Machine and the Liberation of
Women - Put in the Detergent, Close the Lid and Relax."

The article was printed at the weekend in l'Osservatore Romano, the semi-official Vatican newspaper,
to mark international Women's Day on Sunday.

"What in the 20th century did more to liberate Western women?," asks the article, which was written
