    Bob Campbell MW says:

    There are currently 124 female Masters of Wine. The Study Programme and Examination have always been open to both women and men, and Sarah Morphew Stephen MW became the first female Master of Wine in 1970. 1979 was the first year that equal numbers of women and men passed, and in 2001 more women than men became MWs for the first time. In 2014 and 2015 there were more women than men among the new Masters of Wine.
