Female Yeoman Warder

There is now one more bastion of male dominated employment which has been breached by women, or rather a woman.

The bastion is question is actually the Tower of London and there will be a female Beefeater in the Autumn. Women with 22 years service are still a real rarity in the Army so I don’t imagine that there are many eligible female applicants, I have no idea what the entry criteria are either but it is good to see that she got the job on merit. Male dominated body, few female applicants, real desire to diversify . . . . . . . . now where have we heard that before?

I am sure that there will be a lot of jokes doing the rounds, I can’t think of any yet but I am sure that they will come.
