This chapter discusses the campaign for women’s ordination to the priesthood in the Anglican Communion between 1913 and 1945. Church feminists saw ordination as a natural progression from political emancipation. The established Church struggled to come to terms with this suggestion. Despite holding several theological commissions, the Church was unable to come to a satisfactory theological position on women’s ordination. The demand for sacral equality in the priesthood brought the interwar Church to the limits of its capacity to imagine sexual equality.
