"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)

She is not making a 'feminist' statement more of a detailed backed up comment on the injustice women receive in law, particulary if you are not in the 'middle - upper class' and young women entering law would be wise to read this to keep you focussed on your goal.
This book is and has been a huge inspiration to me throughout my career.
Thank you Helena
Kennedy makes the dry details of British law lively and memorable, full of human stories and humane insights. Since the book was written,the law has ponderously moved on - in some ways, however, what Kennedy has to say is still mostly accurate, and is very, very important if we want to live in a free and civilised country.
