Spider Woman: A Life – Lady Hale
Sun, 31 October 3:00pm
As President of the Supreme Court, Lady Hale won global attention in finding the 2019 prorogation of Parliament to be unlawful. Yet that dramatic moment was merely the pinnacle of a career as a pioneering reformer. The first woman and youngest person to be appointed to the Law Commission, Lady Hale was a lifelong smasher of glass-ceilings. In a profession dominated by men, she took as her motto ‘women are equal to everything’. Her landmark rulings in areas including domestic violence, divorce, mental health and equality were landmark achievements. Spider Woman is the remarkable story of a truly inspirational woman.
