Church of England: Female bishops getting closer to approval

Canterbury Cathedral in Kent

The Church of England is one step away from having its first woman bishop after all of its dioceses voted in favour of the plans.

The church announced today that all 44 dioceses have approved the proposal, which will pave the way for women to be promoted to the senior rank.

It leaves just one major hurdle – a final vote in July – to changing centuries of church practice.
