One of our most eminent lawyers and defenders of human rights shows how the British justice system is discriminating against, and failing, women.

About the Author

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.

Reviews

Stimulating and scary -- Jeanette Winterson * Guardian *
An excellent and forensic takedown... fascinating and chilling... women are being let down wholesale by a justice system designed with men in mind. And almost the worst thing is, it doesn't have to be this way -- Caroline Criado-Perez * Guardian *
An unflinching look at women in the justice system... an important book because it challenges acquiescence to everyday sexism and inspires change -- Kirsty Brimelow * The Times, **Books of the Year** *
Helena Kennedy has written a chilling expose of how the law has historically failed women. Taking no prisoners, Kennedy outlines the damage we must undo, and the changes we must make. Eve was Shamed is a necessary book for the #MeToo era -- Amanda Foreman
Passionate and persuasive proof that equal justice is an ideal yet to be achieved. Drawing upon her outstanding career at the defence Bar and of leading reform in Parliament, Helena Kennedy eloquently urges an end to the discrimination and dehumanisation that women suffer in the courts, and in their lives -- Geoffrey Robertson QC
