Forces News poll results are in, after the public was asked whether the British Army should drop male ranking conventions – following calls to provide gender-neutral alternatives.
A social media poll had received 393 votes on the matter.
The majority, 71.8%, voted no, while 21.1% voted yes and 7.1% were not sure.
- Should Army have gender-neutral naming conventions for its ranks?
- Senior Royal Navy officer speaks about her experience of gender prejudice in service
- I'm disappointed with progress made so far, complaints ombudsman says
It comes as the RAF and Royal Navy have both made steps towards more inclusive language in recent years.
Women only make up 10% of the Army's regular forces and 15% of its future reserves.
Amid calls for a change, the service told Forces News in a recent article that it values "every soldier within the Army" and it "remains open to different views and opinions on the naming of ranks" as "women, like men, play a key part".
