After 500 Years, Tower of London Hired First Female Beefeater.

After 500 years of employing only male Tower of London guards, the famous landmark has hired its first female Beefeater:

The Tower of London has appointed a female Beefeater for the first time in its history. Since 1485, the Tower of London has only employed male Beefeaters, but in September the first Yeoman Warder will join the 35-strong guard.

She fought off competition from five other candidates, all male, and will replace a retiring Beefeater. A successful candidate must have served a minimum of 22 years in the forces as well as boast a long service and good conduct medal.

And no, that's not the pic of a woman Beefeater: Link - via A Welsh View
