About this deal

New Paperbacks NEW PAPERBACKS [jsb_filter_by_tags count="15" show_more="10" sort_by="total_products"/] A selection of recent paperbacks. At the Inns of Court, she describes an overwhelmingly male and overtly misogynistic environment steeped in bizarre ritual. This is a cogently argued examination of how the British legal system ignores, downgrades, underrates and discriminates against women … Kennedy has properly argued that a profession that practises law and pursues justice must be seen to be just, reasonable, unprejudiced and open to public scrutiny. Finally the way she uses language that can be deciphered by those without a legal mind means I will suggest it to everyone who has an interest in law, feminism, politics or current affairs; it is a brilliant, easy and emotive read.

There are many Booker and Nobel Prize-winning authors on the Vintage list such as Kingsley Amis, A S Byatt, J M Coetzee, Ismail Kadare, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, Anne Enright, Iris Murdoch, Roddy Doyle and Ben Okri, to name a few. If a woman is loud, or very confident, this will have an impact on the way a judge and jury will view her.However, the key messages were sound and I would still recommend this to anyone of any gender with an interest in justice and the law. She also tackles the prison system, and how many women are sentenced to imprisonment for minor crimes for which a man would not be. Such brief basics will be helpful to a first-year law student since it helps you to approach law in a more rounded way. Those most susceptible to this injustice are women, the young, the working class, immigrants, the Irish, black people and homosexuals.

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. This book is a little older, so more progress may have been made since its release, but the stereotypes still very much exist and it's important that people become/remain aware of them. The gender nature of certain crimes and their victims and the gendered nature of so much law, because it is usually administered by men, is still insufficiently recognized or discussed.Kennedy does a reasonable job of looking at this issue through a more intersectional lens, particularly in terms of race and class.
