Misjustice: How British Law is Failing Women is a fascinating and chilling book that insists on change. Two women a week are killed by a spouse or a partner. Every seven minutes a woman is raped. One of Britain’s most eminent lawyers and defenders of human rights, Helena Kennedy has written unflinchingly about new evidence that women are being discriminated against by the law and its institutions. From the shocking lack of female judges to the continuing scandal of female prisons, the need for change is unanswerable.
