Two women a week are killed by a spouse or partner.
Every seven minutes a woman is raped.
The police receive one phone call per minute about domestic violence.
Now is the time for change.
Helena Kennedy forensically examines the pressing new evidence that women are being discriminated against when it comes to the law. From the shocking lack of female judges to the scandal of female prisons and the double discrimination experienced by BAME women, Kennedy shows with force and fury that change for women must start at the heart of what makes society just.
