On this day in 1976, the 65th General Convention of the Episcopal Church officially approved the ordination of women. This action allowed the official recognition of fifteen women previously ordained in Philadelphia and Washington. Three and a half months later Jacqueline Means of Indianapolis, Indiana, became the first woman ordained into the Episcopal Church after its official sanction.
