On guard in Britain: Did the Beefeaters harass a female recruit?


History is filled with pioneering women who have been met with adversity for taking on traditional male roles. Unfortunately, Moira Cameron, Britain's first female Beefeater (the ceremonial guards outside the Tower of London), is no exception.

According to Cameron, her male colleagues sent her evil notes, secretly altered her online profile and even vandalized her uniform, spurring her to file a harassment lawsuit. As a result, two male Beefeaters have been suspended from their duties on charges that they bullied Cameron. A third Beefeater is under investigation.
