The life journey of a woman who-as a medical doctor, missionary nun, pioneer of gender equality, Anglican priest, and now a contemplative Catholic-influenced the lives of thousands.Una Kroll is one of the most outspoken campaigners for the ordination of women. She achieved a certain notoriety in 1978 at the Church of England's General Synod when its members turned down a proposal to prepare legislation to ordain women to the priesthood. Quoting from Matthew 7:9, she shouted from the gallery "We asked you for bread and you gave us a stone."2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the ordination of women on the Church of England and 2015 will almost certainly see the consecration of women as bishops. This celebration will both rekindle interest in the history of the movement for women's ordination and also serve to further ignite debate for the same in the Roman Catholic Church.Una Kroll told BBC radio about the campaign for the full inclusion of women into the Anglican church and her role in it.

Here's what you say about us...

Una Kroll is a retired medical doctor, former Anglican priest, and now a Roman Catholic. She is the author of eleven books. She lives in Bury, Lancashire.

Una Kroll has written a remarkable book from her perspective both as a medical doctor and as one of the first women priests in the Church of England. The stories Una recounts reveal a woman with a passionate humanity, brilliant intellect and deep spiritual insight. As both doctor and priest, Una has been a pioneering advocate for women: whether introducing new healthcare treatments or being one of the most outspoken campaigners for women's ordination. Ultimately, though, Una has written a spiritual biography of women's struggle for full inclusion in the Church's ministries and mission, with her most profound reflections revealing an evolving understanding of God as creative energy and unconditional love.
