Sibyl and the Elder: Women addressing the system. Has it changed?
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ruth Rushworth.
In 1992 Helena Kennedy wrote a seminal work on women and the criminal justice system called Eve Was Framed. She updated the book in 2003 and is using this lecture to review the subsequent changes which have taken place but also the challenges which remain for women in the courts as defendants, victims and as lawyers. She will argue that a veneer of equal opportunity and fairness now exists but the system itself resists fundamental change because of law’s role in maintaining the status quo and its inability to counter the power of vested interests. She will consider the role of women judges and their scarcity in positions of seniority within the judiciary.
