Women in ministry: why equality is still a long way off

原刊於Christianity Today,2014年6月18日

Having ordained women to the priesthood in 1994 after a fiercely-fought campaign by traditionalists determined to keep them out, when would it nerve itself for the next logical step, the consecration of bishops?

According to statistics published on the Church of England’s website, there has been a sharp rise in the number of ordained women. Between 2002 and 2012 the number of full-time female clergy rose to 1,781, against the number of full-time males which dropped to 6,017. That’s nearly a quarter, and good progress, it might be argued, in a short time.

However: there are consistently more women ordained as non-stipendiary ministers (NSMs), meaning that they earn their living outside the Church.
