The Rt Revd Libby Lane, the first woman to be consecrated as a bishop in the Church of England, is marking the anniversary of her landmark appointment with two portraits of her.
When women were pushing for female ordination to the priesthood we were told that they would usher in a new ethos in the church, that the pomposity and arrogance of the house of bishops would be diluted by the influx of humble women infused with Christlike attitude.
Did this happen?
The aim of the women's movement in the Christian church appears to be to make women exactly the same as men as anything else would not be fair. What a wasted opportunity!
