The Church of England marked 20 years of women clergy with a celebration in central London today.
Hundreds of women clergy and their families gathered ahead of the national service to mark the 20th anniversary of the first female priests in the Church.
The Rev Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Speaker's Chaplain to the House of Commons and a parish priest in Hackney, east London, held a placard saying: "Women: Beautifully, wonderfully made in the image of God!". She said:
"This was used back in 1992 when we had the vote. I stood on the steps of Church House silently because we were told we should not celebrate in case we upset others. Today we are going to celebrate."
