Vicky was a guest on Sunday Morning Live, an ethical debate show broadcast live from BBC studios in Belfast.

She discussed ‘women bishops’, tackling arguments from Suzie Leafe (Director of REFORM, a prominent anti-women-in-Church-leadership organisation) and Angela Epstein (a self-declared ‘non feminist’, believing women’s roles within religion should be subservient to men and not involve spiritual leadership). Poet and activist Benjamin Zephaniah was also a panellist and agreed with Vicky that women’s roles within religion should not be restricted on the basis of gender.
