Conservative Sydney Anglicans continue to oppose women as priests

The Church of England has finally agreed to appoint women bishops, but the Sydney Anglicans continue to oppose admitting women to the priesthood. Their opposition is based on a claim that the Bible requires women to submit to their husbands in marriage and to male leaders in the church. Therefore, they cannot be leaders in mixed congregations of men and women.
