(LONDON) -- Britain's Prime Minister has begun to push a law that gives females an equal right to ascend to the throne as male members of the royal family.
David Cameron has begun urging the heads of Commonwealth governments to make succession gender neutral. The current 300-year-old law makes younger males precede older females in the line of succession.
Cameron also would like to drop a legal ban on the monarch being married to a Catholic.
