Our thanks to David for passing on this email to him from Dr John Barry:
After eight years of campaigning, I am delighted to tell you the result of the BPS ballot: the majority have voted for a Male Psychology Section of the BPS!
Many thanks to everyone who voted for the Male Psychology Section, and who have supported us over the years. Three cheers for Martin Seager, who was the first to propose a Male Psychology Section.
Out of around 4000 votes, two thirds were for creating a Male Psychology Section. I hope in the coming years we will demonstrate that the yes vote was for the common good.
Congratulations also to the other three new BPS Sections, all of which were approved today.
As Martin would say, onwards and upwards!
