Women in Church split on General Synod female bishops vote

The Right Reverend Victoria Matthews, currently the Bishop of Christchurch in New Zealand and the first woman to be ordained in the Anglican Church of Canada, and Emma Forward, one of the Synod's youngest elected members, discuss the issues on BBC Newsnight.
