In 2013 a report was released that stated ordained Anglican women face a stained glass ceiling. This report explained that throughout the Anglican Communion women still have a hard time getting the top jobs.
In recent years we have seen a patchwork of progress in the Anglican Communion. Although the ordination of women to all three orders of ministry (bishop, priest, deacon) is canonically possible, there are still provinces within the Anglican Communion where women are prohibited from participating in any of the three holy orders.

On March 7, 1965, people who were attempting to peacefully march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where savagely turned back by police. Reeb and his wife were among those who watched the television news coverage of the day's events.
In response to what came to be known as "Bloody Sunday," King sent out a call to clergy around the country to join him in Selma for a second attempt to cross that bridge on Tuesday, March 9. Reeb heard about King’s request on the morning of March 8, and he was on a plane heading to Selma later that evening.
Although people were prevented from crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge on March 7 they succeeded two days later and Reeb was among them. So began the landmark civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery which took place two weeks later.
