"This year, more women (124) than men (123) are expected to be ordained in the Church of England for the first time. An average of 267 men were ordained each of the three years before the church began ordaining women, meaning that the number has fallen by half in the ten years since." Touchstone, April 2005, p. 51.

That's perfect. A few women get to participate and the number of men decline, resulting in equal numbers. That's all the matters, right? It's like the high schools and colleges who, in obeisance to Title IX, drop men's sports in order to equalize the offerings between the sexes, when money is scarce or there aren't enough women to round out a team.
