‘Born into a club in which they are not welcome’

July 23rd, 2013
09:57 AM ET

By Juliet Fuisz, CNN

“In the peerage, there are girls who by an accident of birth are born into a club in which they are not welcome,” Lady Elizabeth Campbell told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday.

Campbell, as the daughter of the 25th Thane of Cawdor, is a member of that peerage, or nobility – not to be confused with “royalty.”

Thanks to legislation passed this year, female royalty will be able to inherit their family’s wealth, but women in the peerage do not have that right.

It was an issue portrayed in the popular television drama Downton Abbey, in which a family with only daughters is forced to find a distant cousin to inherit the family fortune.

Click above to watch Amanpour’s full interview with Lady Campbell, and find out about her fight for women’s equality.

    So the Monarchy and the common folk can have equality but the aristocrats can't? How is that double standard possible in this day and age? It's sounds like male tyranny of the upper classes. Good luck Lady Campbell in your struggle to usher these males into the 21st Century.

    It is akin to same practice in Nigeria, were women are not allowed to inherit property which belongs to her parents.

    There is law and order folks. And we are definitely not equal. The dynamics of world Power are elusive to those who have never drank of the wisdom of the Creator. So it is better not to judge.

    Notwithstanding our independence from the UK, in the 1970s, the Irish Parliament had to pass a special Act of Parliament to overturn this policy in relation to the ancestral estate of a British Lord entirely in the Republic of Ireland.
