St Helen's sponsors Helena Kennedy at Henley Literary Festival

On 7 October, a group of Upper Sixth students attended Henley Literary Festival to enjoy a talk and question and answer session by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC. This popular event was proudly sponsored by St Helen’s. The focus of the talk was her newly published book Eve was Shamed, a sequel to Eve was Framed which addressed fundamental issues in society today including the way in which the justice system is continually failing women. She spoke passionately and eloquently, recounting cases both from her career in the legal profession and those more recently featured in the media, of the injustices women face in society today on a global basis. Apart from being an exceptional speaker, Baroness Kennedy created a stimulating and interactive session and was an inspiration to all the girls who attended the talk.
