Freemasons could break all-male rule by allowing women in…if they joined as man
Freemasons in Scotland are looking to follow their counterparts in England.
Freemasons in Scotland are to consider allowing women members for the first time – as long as they were men when they joined.
The secretive society have been male-only for centuries – but the Grand Lodge could be set to change their rules following similar moves south of the Border.
The United Grand Lodge of England haveissued guidance to their 200,000 members that “a Freemason who after initiation ceases to be a man does not cease to be a Freemason”.
