Abstract

This week the Synod of the Church of England voted against the appointment of female bishops. Mick Power argues that the decision reflects deep-rooted principles of inequality between the sexes, which can be traced through the historical development of the major faiths. As European society tackles discrimination and strengthens the equality of its citizens, religion is likely to appear increasingly out of touch.
