From the article:
The Scottish Episcopal Church, part of the Anglican faith, has allowed women to become bishops since 2003, but so far none has been appointed. Mrs Peden, married with three children, was the first to make it that far in 2010.
The Roman Catholic Church does not allow female bishops, nor even female priests. The Church of England has allowed women to be priests since the 1990s, but is still fighting over the issue of female bishops
The post of Bishop of Brechin became vacant last year after the retirement of Dr John Mantle. The candidates for last night’s election were chosen by a committee, and interviewed by the electoral synod before the final vote.
