It is an outrage that women can not hold positions of office in this day and age! How is this even justified????

I am signing this because it is no longer 1421 and I deeply dislike misogyny.

Being an officer or jury member in the Alcester Court Leet is a privilege. And a privilege that should be opened-up to the currently excluded half of the community. For the longer-term viability and credibility of the Court Leet women should naturally be included within their ranks. Other Courts Leet across the country have already made that provision. And such change need not be at the expense of worthy traditions. I would urge any decision-maker to seize this opportunity - and broaden the skills and support available to the Court Leet. The status quo sends out a very poor message to the women and girls in the community. And, gives the wrong message to young men too.

Times have changed too many groups are influenced solely by men & today's women is no longer just a stay at home mum.
Many women are business women with incredible abilities to juggle many hats & these skills, connections & keen desire to make a difference to their communities needs addressing.

I see no good reason why women should be excluded from this organisation. Traditions can be maintained whilst acknowledging gender equality. It’s way beyond time to correct this discrimination.

There is no place for this level of misogyny in the 21st century

...because the notion that women were at any point less intellectual and valid in their ideas than us simple, testosterone-driven beasts is absurd  and that their opinions would still not be recognized in this day and age is pathetic, so let's sort it out! 落
