ONLY one-third of managers, directors and senior officials in the Island are female, the first major investigation in to the status of women in Jersey has found.

The finding is just one of a series of conclusions – including a lack of affordable childcare and poor maternity rights – which paint a picture of a society in which the rights of women lag behind other jurisdictions.

The conclusions are contained in a report published yesterday by the Community Relations Trust, a publicly funded group which aims to tackle discrimination.
