Church of England one step away from having women bishops approved after ALL of its dioceses vote in favour of plans

From The Daily Mail-

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.

The introduction of  women bishops has long divided the Anglican Communion, a Christian denomination with more than 80 million followers worldwide.

Anglican churches in Australia, New Zealand and the United States already have women serving as bishops.
