RadioRotary is especially delighted to be able to interview Jennifer Jones, who for the Rotary Year will be president of Rotary International RI , the first woman in the year history of Rotary to achieve that high office. Until a little more than 30 years ago, there were no women officially in Rotary—a club in California that accepted women in was dropped from RI for this violation of rules. But ten years later the US Supreme Court ruled that Rotary could not reject members on the basis of gender, and US clubs began to admit women. The Canadian courts also recognized that Rotary clubs should be gender neutral and, in , RI agreed, allowing clubs around the world to admit women members. President-nominee Jones, from the Windsor-Roseland Rotary Club which spans Canada and the US , joined Rotary in and has been active at club and district levels ever since, becoming a director and a vice-president of RI. In her RadioRotary interview she tells her story and discusses how the Rotary Polio-Plus experience has provided thousands of workers who have been dealing with the Covid pandemic. She reveals that RI has officially added protection of the environment to the six areas of focus and speaks of her interest in making the young-persons Rotary, Rotaract, a gateway to the full Rotary experience.

Why should a child go hungry? With its rusting masts visible in the middle of the Thames Estuary, this is the American munitions ship, SS Richard Montgomery, which sank during the Second World War with 1, tonnes of high explosives aboard. With a radio station, you listen because there is entertainment and we can feed in the Rotary news as part of the package. Since then, the Criterion has had a chequered history, and once fell into disrepair after a bombing raid targeted at the docks during World War One. We believe a radio station is something younger people will be attracted to, either listening to what we are broadcasting, or wanting to get involved, we are finding that is the case already. The radio station was launched last October, led by chairman Steve Wood and studio manager John Robinson.
