Reconfiguring the law to provide justice for women

by Helena Kennedy
  • Key point 1
    Women everywhere make up a very small percentage of those who come before the court. Women on the whole are less inclined to criminal activity.
  • Key point 2
    In every country, the impunity that there is for violence against women is still a very serious problem.
  • Key point 3
    It’s only been in comparatively recent times that we’ve started to challenge the assumption that women will lie about matters to do with sex.
  • Key point 4
    The way to address inequality is to bring it into curriculums, particularly in our law schools, and to make sure that we have a much more diverse judiciary in common law systems.
