Pink smoke rises at the Vatican

However, there was pink smoke in air in Rome on Tuesday afternoon.

A group of women released pink smoke outside the Vatican to protest the church. They’re calling for the Catholic Church to lift the ban on the ordination of women. Currently women cannot be a priest, cardinal or pope.
