  • "Stimulating and scary"

    Jeanette Winterson, Guardian
  • "An excellent and forensic takedown... fascinating and chilling... women are being let down wholesale by a justice system designed with men in mind. And almost the worst thing is, it doesn't have to be this way"

    Caroline Criado-Perez, Guardian
  • "An unflinching look at women in the justice system… an important book because it challenges acquiescence to everyday sexism and inspires change"

    Kirsty Brimelow, The Times, **Books of the Year**
  • "Helena Kennedy has written a chilling exposé of how the law has historically failed women. Taking no prisoners, Kennedy outlines the damage we must undo, and the changes we must make. Eve was Shamed is a necessary book for the #MeToo era"

    Amanda Foreman
  • "Passionate and persuasive proof that equal justice is an ideal yet to be achieved. Drawing upon her outstanding career at the defence Bar and of leading reform in Parliament, Helena Kennedy eloquently urges an end to the discrimination and dehumanisation that women suffer in the courts, and in their lives"
