FJDG in conversation with Bri Lee 

 

Bri's critically acclaimed book Eggshell Skull (Allen & Unwin 2018), exploring the treatment of sexual offences within the legal system, was the basis of one of our events in Hilary Term. Premised on her first-hand experience of the law in action as a Judge's Associate in the District Court of Queensland, Australia, this memoir searingly confronts the structural prejudice against women and children that is entrenched in our legal institutions, presenting a compelling case for a feminist reassessment of the law in the twenty-first century. Daring to merge the personal and the political, the book also follows Bri's journey to seek redress for a childhood sexual assault, revealing the complexities and injustice of the judicial process from a complainant's perspective. We are thrilled that Bri will be joining the FJDG in May for an evening of discussion about her work, including her upcoming book (to be published in June).
