out of necessity But in this book I found a kind of compromise While it does tell you facts and figures and is detailed in its evidence it also tells stories of the authors experience and narrates courtroom drama in a way that keeps you interested in what Kennedy is trying to tell youAnd on that subject what she is trying to tell you is perfectly argued This novel might be slightly out of date in its citing of laws passed ten years ago especially when legal precedent is constantly changing but generally what was true then is still true now unfortunately While it doesn t take into account recent improvements in legal training and police handling of many legal cases it pretty much sums up the poor treatment women experience in the British Justice system in a succinct and entertaining way If you re afraid this book will just paint women as victims as Eves who have been framed don t be She incriminates women as much as men and talks an eual share about female criminals as she does about female victims But being a feminist reading of the law she obviously also discusses how female criminals are vilified far than men for committing a crime a masculine act which involves transgressing the boundaries of what is expected of women in society The way she handles sensitive topics such as rape domestic violence infanticide prostitution etc is skilful and her elouent argument against the Chivalry Theory changed the misconceptions I had about women being treated gently than men in our legal system She also tackles the prison system and how many women are sentenced to imprisonment for minor crimes for which a man would not be Her attack on double standards is witty and intelligent and only made me fall further in love with her and her writingHer final uestioning of whether we want euality with men or to be treated fairly and her discussion of the vast difference between these two approaches was fascinating Her resounding conclusion was we must demand fairness

Helena Kennedy ✓ 3 characters download ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Helena Kennedy Eve Was Framed Women And British Justice review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Eve Was Framed offers an impassioned personal critiue of the British legal system Helena Kennedy focuses on the treatment of women in our courts at the prejudices of A fascinating look at the way in which the legal system is institutionally sexist and the impact that has on the women who pass through it Kennedy shares her own experience of coming up as one of the few female barristers and the ways in which archaic traditions are limiting the pipeline of female lawyers who could become tomorrow s judges and thus the system is perpetuatedMore troubling is the impact this lack of representation has on the women who are either victims of crimes particularly disproportionately gendered ones such as domestic or sexual violence or charged with crimes and their ability to access fair treatment Even if we exclude the men on the bench who are out and out misogynists there s a fundamental issue of lack of understanding in those that remainPolice lawyers and judges still have difficulties in abandoning their stereotype of the abused woman as someone who is submissive and cowed When the woman appears competent or has a bit of gumption or if she seems to be materially well off there is a failure of the imagination as to how she could be victimised Lawyers still say of a battered woman She is a middle class woman It is not as though she could not afford alternative accommodation As a survivor myself I found the sections about sexual violence particularly illuminating and infuriating There is still a troubling largely unconscious perception that entitlement to a woman s body is something that can be debated Here is a uote from the House of Lords during the reading debate of the Sexual Offences ActViscount Bledisloe chose an unfortunate but telling example from which to draw the principle If I am accused of stealing your property it is a defence if I show an honest belief that I had a claim of right to that property That is the general test of the criminal law While Bledisloe would no doubt have claimed that this was an innocent metaphor it s problematic that the idea of property is the first analogy a man can reach for in a conversation about rape given the history of women once being the legal property of their fathers or their husbands More frustrating is the idea that a reasonable defence would be an honest belief of entitlement and demonstrates how the law is still not fit for purpose when it comes to sexual violence This is unlikely to improve while the mechanisms of amending existing and introducing new laws is so dominated by affluent white cishet non disabled men ie the group who are far likely to be the perpetrators than the survivors of this particular crimeKennedy does a reasonable job of looking at this issue through a intersectional lens particularly in terms of race and class I found her analysis of the perception of black women in court particularly interesting and this was again contextualised in the total lack of racial diversity in the legal systems However I also recognise as a white middle class woman myself there may well have been gaps problematic elements that I missed Sexuality was briefly referenced but there was no reference to the complexities of gender in terms of trans and non binary people s experiences or to the experiences of disabled women who are also disproportionately likely to experience violence I also found the constant references to battered women very uncomfortable but I also appreciate that this book was written in the 90s when the term was commonly used I d be interested to see if she s dropped that term in her recent follow up Eve Was Shamed How British Justice is Failing WomenOverall a very interesting book and a much needed female perspective on how the justice system impacts women It is uite academic in nature so it was uite a slow read for me As such I would give it 35 stars rounded up here as I believe it has a lot to offer even if the reading experience wasn t always easy
