A female priest is a 'priestess'

DOREEN McCormack (Write Back, September 25) mentions the subject of female priests. Surely the correct term for a female priest would be 'priestess'?

A queen is not a 'female king' and an actress is not a 'female actor'. And I don't think the term 'bishopress' has been invented yet.
