Bridport...A Town Run By Women
12:03am 26th May 2013
Never mind the Spice Girls...Girl power is alive and well at Bridport Town Council.
Men are just not getting a look in on the town council, with Mayor Maggie Ray, Deputy Sandra Brown, and council leader Sarah Williams.
Janis Brown is the mayor's chaplain and Jane Silver-Corren is the town crier.
The Mayor's husband, councillor Martin Ray does at least have the title 'Consort'.
The mayor says there is a larger number of women on the town council than previously, and positions were selected in terms of ability rather than any gender bias.
