First woman bishop in Lords hopeful stained glass ceiling will be broken

From The UK-

The first female bishop to take a seat in the House of Lords has said she would like a woman to be archbishop of Canterbury.

The Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Rev Rachel Treweek, said "ideally" she would like a female to lead the world's Anglicans in the future.

Peers cheered and applauded as the Bishop took her seat in the House of Lords in a landmark moment for the Upper Chamber and the Church.

She was supported by the current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, along with the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres as she swore the oath of allegiance to the Queen.
