Two months in, first woman dean of Wales cathedral resigns

Just two months into the job, the first female dean of Llandaff Cathedral in Wales has resigned. Apparently she encountered a certain amount of resistance to the idea of a woman in this position. From WalesOnline:

The first woman Dean of Llandaff Cathedral has resigned just two months after she was installed in the post.

The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, said he had accepted Janet Henderson’s resignation “with enormous sadness”.

Church in Wales sources have told WalesOnline that Dean Henderson had had “a “difficult time” since her appointment, with some clergy resenting the appointment of a woman.
