I see no reason why a church that ordains women priests should not also ordain them bishops. Anglicans long ago gave up any pretense at clergy acting in persona christi. They do not have apostolic succession and they have not followed Christ's model of selecting male leaders. What's the big deal now about consecrating women bishops? They could have done it long ago.
