NOVEMBER 9, 2020: At 103, Jamaica’s first female Resident Magistrate Ena Collymore-Woodstock keeps her self-busy doing exercises via zoom. She is not one to keep still. During her very active legal career she broke several glass ceilings as she ventured into territories that were considered male dominated. Collymore-Woodstock served in that capacity until 1943 when she joined the Auxiliary Territorial Services (ATS), the women’s branch of the British army. She became the first West Indian to become a radar operator and is today Britain's oldest surviving female Second World War veteran.
