BOARD’SBROADERGENDERAGENDA

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

BOARD of Deputies pres­i­dent Jonathan Arkush couldn’t re­sist a dig at the in­abil­ity of some Jewish Lead­er­ship Coun­cil mem­bers to recog­nise the sole woman in their Down­ing Street del­e­ga­tion last week. But he slid off the moral high ground when invit­ing a fe­male deputy with short hair and a striped shirt to the mic at

Sun­day’s Board meet­ing with the words “Yes, sir?”

The Board quickly re­cap­tured it, how­ever, with its all-woman del­e­ga­tion to Shadow Education Sec­re­tary Lucy Pow­ell ( se­cond right) this week, con­sist­ing of ( from­left) chief ex­ec­u­tive Gil­lian Mer­ron, education of­fi­cer Sara Perl­mut­ter vice-pres­i­dent Sheila Ge­wolb.
