“Go for it.”

On February 11, 1989, the Rt. Rev. Barbara Clementine Harris was the first woman to be ordained bishop in the Anglican Communion in Boston, Massachusetts.

Our own Ann Fontaine remembers:

It was an amazing time. Sitting in the balcony looking directly down on the scene – she took her mitre, looked at if for a moment and the PBs open mike let us hear “Go for it” — she put it on and the place went nuts.
