Sweden's first female archbishop sworn in

The Local – Sweden’s News in English reports that “bishop Antje Jackelén has made history after becoming Sweden’s first ever female archbishop at a ceremony in Uppsala”.

It is sad to note the spite that has been directed her way.

Her appointment has been hailed by outgoing archbishop Anders Wejryd who said “it was about time” a woman took the post.

“We already have female leading bishops in Norway, USA and Germany,” he told SVT.
