In terms of gender balance at the top, the Bank of England is as bad as UK plc. The nine members of the monetary policy committee (MPC) are all men, as are the 11 members of the financial policy committee (FPC). Threadneedle Street has three governors and 10 other executive directors, of whom only one – the HR boss, Catherine Brown – is a woman. Lady Rice is the only non-male among the dozen members of the Bank's court of governors.
