**This is a special episode of A Matter of Faith: A Presby Podcast**

Rev. Dr. Margaret E. Towner is known to many as the first woman ordained Presbyterian minister.  Margaret was ordained on Oct. 24, 1956. This month she will celebrate the 65th anniversary of her ordination. Join Simon and Lee as they have an amazing conversation with Marg.

Guest Question:
What was your experience becoming the first ordained woman Presbyterian minister? How have you seen opportunities for women in the church (and the ordination process) change during your life? What work do you think remains for church in terms of justice and equality?
