It's 20 years since the first women were ordained as priests in the Church of England.

The service was taken by Bishop Barry Rogerson at Bristol Cathedral in March 1994 and ended centuries of male domination.

The first woman to be made a priest was Angela Berners-Wilson, who now works as a chaplain at the University of Bath.
