Barbara Harris, the first woman to become a bishop in the Anglican Communion, just celebrated 20 years of service as a bishop.  Jim Richardson comments on this in his blog, Fiat Lux, saying:

We came into the Episcopal Church because of Barbara Harris, though it was years before we met her and got to tell her our story. In 1989, as Lori and I were planning to get married, we talked about finding a church to be our faith home. I had grown up in the Episcopal Church, and Lori in the Catholic Church. I felt disillusioned by the Episcopal Church as a young adult because it seemed so rigid and out-of-touch, and Lori felt much the same way about the church of her youth.
