One day the headline will simply read 'Another Dean'.

@David - one day maybe, but today let us rejoice that a gifted woman priest has been appointed as Dean of Guildford (my Diocese) and pray for Dianna.

Where next? Chelmsford?
Including Europe there are 44 dioceses in the CofE - with 5 women deans - that means only 17 more cathedrals need to appoint a woman as dean to achieve parity.
