BROOKLINE, Mass. (CBS/AP) — A Massachusetts town says it will consider changing the name of its governing body from the Board of Selectmen to the Board of Selectwomen.
Under a proposal all members of the board, whether male or female, would be referred to as selectwomen.
A second proposal would create gender-neutral language for the board and its members.
Board members will take up the proposals at their November meeting.
