Publisher Description

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

Author Biography

Helena Kennedy QC is one of Britain's most distinguished lawyers and public figures. She is a regular broadcaster, journalist and lecturer and throughout her career has focussed on giving voice to those who have least power in the system, championing civil liberties and civil rights. Her 1992 book Eve Was Framed led to a number of key reforms for women and was followed in 2004 by Just Law. She was the Master of Mansfield College, University of Oxford, from 2011 to 2018, and was awarded a life peerage in 1997. Born in Glasgow, she lives in London.

Review

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 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 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 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 Stimulating and scary -- Jeanette Winterson Guardian
