Eve Was Framed Summary

Eve Was Framed: Women and British Justice by Helena Kennedy

Eve Was Framed offers an impassioned, personal critique of the British legal system. Helena Kennedy focuses on the treatment of women in our courts - at the prejudices of judges, the misconceptions of jurors, the labyrinths of court procedures and the influence of the media. But the inequities she uncovers could apply equally to any disadvantaged group - to those whose cases are subtly affected by race, class poverty or politics, or who are burdened, even before they appear in court, by misleading stereotypes.

Eve Was Framed Reviews

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 Neuberger * Sunday Times *
A powerful and authoritative polemic-brave, forceful and eloquent. It may even change things * Sunday Telegraph *
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 *
