'This is an important book - it will make a substantial difference' Financial Times
Helena Kennedy QC is one of Britain's most distinguished lawyers and public figures. She is a regular broadcaster, journalist and lecturer and throughout her career has focussed on giving voice to those who have least power in the system, championing civil liberties and civil rights. Her 1992 book Eve Was Framed led to a number of key reforms for women and was followed in 2004 by Just Law. She was the Master of Mansfield College, University of Oxford, from 2011 to 2018, and was awarded a life peerage in 1997. Born in Glasgow, she lives in London.
This is a cogently argued examination of how the British legal
system ignores, downgrades, underrates and discriminates against
women-Kennedy has properly argued that a profession that practises
law and pursues justice must be seen to be just, reasonable,
unprejudiced, and open to public scrutiny. Bravissima! -- Julia

A powerful and authoritative polemic-Kennedy cites precedents and incontrovertible evidence to show how a 'web of prejudice, privilege and misinformation affects women' in all their dealings with the law-brave, forceful and eloquent. It may even change things -- Jessica Mann * Sunday Telegraph *
