The report finds there have been more efforts to bolster outreach to BAME communities but this has not resulted in appointments in judges. There is not a single BAME judge in the supreme court. It also urges the establishment of more structured judicial career paths to diversify judge appointees at top levels so that more come from tribunals, in-house and private practice solicitors, as opposed to the bar. Our senior judiciary continues to be dominated by white men from the independent bar … The judiciary play a critical role in our democracy and hold immense power in society. That such power is held by such an unrepresentative group of people — however meritorious — should be of concern to us all.

Former members of the group, called People of Praise, say it teaches that wives must submit to the will of their husbands. But Barrett, 48, grew up in New Orleans in a family deeply connected to the organization and as recently as she served as a trustee at the People of Praise-affiliated Trinity Schools Inc. People of Praise is a religious community based in charismatic Catholicism, a movement that grew out of the influence of Pentecostalism, which emphasizes a personal relationship with Jesus and can include baptism in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. The group organizes and meets outside the purview of a church and includes people from several Christian denominations, but its members are mostly Roman Catholic. Barrett, by contrast, is being hailed by religious conservatives as an ideological heir to the late Justice Antonin Scalia, a staunch abortion-rights opponent for whom she clerked as a young lawyer.
There is not a single country in the world today whose top political position is held by a woman. Although, during the last decade, women have entered fields previously barred to them, men still monopolize the key positions in government, industry and military institutions. The questions remain: Are there innate biological harriers that prevent women trom attaining equal power? Or, is there something built into the human male that makes it more natural for him to command females than for females to command him?
Matriarchy is a social system in which females most notably in mammals hold the primary power positions in roles of political leadership, moral authority , social privilege and control of property. While those definitions apply in general English, definitions specific to the disciplines of anthropology and feminism differ in some respects. Most anthropologists hold that there are no known anthropological societies that are unambiguously matriarchal , but some authors believe exceptions may exist currently or may have existed in the past. Matriarchies may also be confused with matrilineal , matrilocal , and matrifocal societies.
