Misjustice Summary

Misjustice: How British Law is Failing Women by Helena Kennedy

Two women a week are killed by a spouse or partner. Every seven minutes a woman is raped. Now is the time for change.

'Fascinating and chilling' Caroline Criado Perez, bestselling author of Invisible Women

Helena Kennedy, one of our most eminent lawyers and defenders of human rights, examines the pressing new evidence that women are being discriminated against when it comes to the law. From the shocking lack of female judges to the scandal of female prisons and the double discrimination experienced by BAME women, Kennedy shows with force and fury that change for women must start at the heart of what makes society just.

'An unflinching look at women in the justice system... an important book because it challenges acquiescence to everyday sexism and inspires change' The Times

Misjustice 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
