Women 'hold 30% of top jobs in UK'
Barrister Cherie Blair has backed quotas for women in the boardroom and Parliament
Fewer than a third of the most senior jobs in the UK are held by women, according to new figures.
Women occupy on average 30.9% of top jobs across 11 sectors, research by BBC News has shown, including business, politics and policing.
The armed forces and judiciary have the fewest women in top posts - 1.3% and 13.2% respectively - while secondary education has the most at more than a third, or 36.7%.
According to the findings, women represent 1.3% of brigadiers or their equivalent and above across the Army, Navy and RAF; 13.2% of the most senior judges; 14.2% of university vice-chancellors; 16.6% of the most senior staff in the police; and 34.7% of the senior civil service.
Women are most strongly represented in secondary education, where they make up 36.7% of headteachers, and in public appointments, where they account for 36.4%, the analysis found.
The European Commission is considering new laws to get more women into top management jobs and a public consultation aimed at finding ways of increasing the number of women in top jobs - including mandatory quotas - ended on Monday.
EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding told the BBC it was "crystal clear" the issue needed to be addressed.
Barrister Cherie Blair backed quotas for women in the boardroom and Parliament in a speech last December. She said: "The truth is that we have waited and waited and unless we do take special measures to look at the systemic reasons why women aren't making it to the top, we are never going to succeed."
But Edwina Currie, the former Conservative health minister, said that she opposed quotas for women.
"I would love to see more women at the top in all sort of posts, and particularly things like judges, where it really does matter," she said. "But I think the way forward is for us women to be as good as we can get and to go and bang on that door and say 'Actually, you are missing really good talent here'."
