The issue first came up in July this year and it caused a lot of reaction across the Anglican community. Many were against the appointment of female Bishops and even though in some Anglican dioceses, women have been ordained for several years, many are still against it. Well, for those who disapprove, it looks like this practice is here to stay. Women are eager to serve God and they have decided that the role reserved for them, that of cleaning the Sanctuary, is great, but no longer enough.

According to an article by the New York Times, after the voting, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Rev. Justin Webly said:

“Today we can begin to embrace a new way of being the church and moving forward together,”

The recent vote has changed centuries old tradition. Funny, in Nigeria, lots of women were also against the appointment of female Bishops. What are your thoughts?
