Gender balance of leadership positions in ringing

This graph shows the gender split in association officers

There is a significant difference comparing the proportion of Association Masters who are women to the proportion of Secretaries. 61 % of Masters are men whereas 63% of women are currently holding the Secretary role. This does not seem to have shifted since 2010. It therefore seems that, across the exercise, there is a tendency for women to take on the more supportive and administrative role.
