In this talk Helena Kennedy QC draws from her recently published book, Eve was Shamed: How British Justice is Failing Women, to examine the discrimination facing women throughout the current British legal system, and the reforms needed to address this inequality.
Helena Kennedy is one of Britain's most distinguished lawyers. She has spent her professional life giving voice to those who have least power within the system, championing civil liberties and promoting human rights. She has used many public platforms – including the House of Lords, to which she was elevated in 1997 – to argue for social justice. She has also written and broadcast on a wide range of issues, from medical negligence to terrorism to the rights of women and children.
