International Women’s Day 8th Mar: First Woman Lord Mayor(ess)


I am writing this today because I won’t have much time tomorrow:

The first and so far the only woman Lord Mayor was Dame Mary Donaldson in 1983-4. Donaldson was a nurse, who later took an interest in the City. She was elected to the Court of Common Council in 1966, became the first female alderman in 1975, and the first female Sheriff in 1981.
