Pope Francis made history Thursday by appointing a woman to the second-highest position in the Vatican City government.

Sister Raffaella Petrini, a 52-year-old Italian nun, was named the secretary general of the Governatorate of the State of Vatican City, according to a report.

The position is similar to that of a deputy governor of a state and oversees Vatican City's almost 2,000 workers and its general workings.


Petrini will watch over the tiny country's firefighters, police, healthcare workers, museums, maintenance personnel, and office staff.

Petrini's rise comes after Pope Francis pledged to increase the role of women in the Vatican's government, according to the report.


Pope Francis has made clear he feels there is no reason why a woman should not hold a top post in the tiny nation.
