Eve was shamed: how British justice is failing women

Eve was shamed: how British justice is failing women

Kennedy, Helena, author

In this book, Helena Kennedy forensically examines the pressing new evidence that women are being routinely discriminated against when it comes to the law. From the demure way women must present themselves in court to the lack of female judges; the treatment of rape victims to battered wives being asked why they don't 'just leave' their partners; the complexities of FGM and other honour crimes to the 'lifestyle' choices of the Rotherham girls; the way statistics hide the double discrimination experienced by BAME women to the scandal of female prisons. She reserves particular concern for the effects of the internet, from the influence of pornography to the use of social media as evidence
