Book DescriptionThe story of the ordination of the Reverend Betty Bone Schiess-one of the first women priests in the Episcopal Church. Reverend Betty Bone Schiess' engagingly written memoir is a valuable contribution to the scholarship of religious study as well as to feminist study and to legal scholarship, particularly on equal rights issues. Schiess draws parallels throughout her work to earlier efforts of the suffragettes and abolitionists of Seneca Falls.
