This is a highly personal criticism of the British legal system, its courts, its judges and its procedures. It takes women as the key example, showing how they have been adversely affected by images of women held by both lawyers and jurors, and discussing recent debates and cases such as the Sara Thornton case and the Kennedy rape trial, as well as the lesser-known daily business of the courts.

The book's scope is wide, ranging from the difficulties faced by women as lawyers to the problems of women who kill, but it also engages with the recent loss of confidence in the police and courts generally, and makes some recommendations for the future.;The author is a QC and was the creator of the award-winning Channel 4 drama series, ""Blind Justice"".
