Feminist judgements – how the story is told … #BeBoldforChange

Here is a nice read Empathy, anxiety and resilience: Lady Hale in the Supreme Court yesterday by Allan Norman at Celtic Knot‏. First published 06.13.13 on Lady Brenda Hale’s feminist judgements.

A longstanding champion of diversity in the judiciary, Lady Hale has previously said the court should be ashamed if it does not improve its record on the issue.

Allan’s piece starts with this quote from Lady Brenda Hale:

“We do not have many women judges in the higher, law-shaping courts. We have even fewer judges, men or women, who are prepared to call themselves feminists…

…it makes such a difference how the story is told. Feminist judges will take different facts from the mass of detail to tell the story in a different way, to bring out the features which others discard, and to explain the features which others will find difficult to understand. …Feminist judges will set the story in a different context, a context which they understand but others may not.

Thanks to @CelticKnotTweet for this good read: Empathy, anxiety and resilience: Lady Hale in the Supreme Court yesterday
