The Vote for Women Priests

On the morning of 11 November, 1992, the Church of England faced its most challenging day since the decision to split from the Catholic church in Rome. By the evening there were scenes of jubilation and despair and the church was never the same again. Christina Rees remembers the day the General Synod voted in favour of women priests.
