List of donors to the project
Below is a list of some of the donors to the Lady Hale book project
who have agreed to be publicly identified, along with any comments they have made.
•Helena Kennedy QC, Baroness Kennedy of the Shaws
Brenda Hale is a feminist icon. Not just because of being a ‘first’. The first women in leadership roles are symbolically important but she has also fought hard to secure real changes in the law to secure justice for women - that puts her at a totally different level. She is a true heroine.
•Henrietta Hill QC, Barrister, Doughty Street Chambers
I am delighted to support this innovative project, which I am sure will reach out to and inspire our next generation of lawyers.
•Kate Aubrey-Johnson, Director, Youth Justice Legal Centre
There couldn’t be a more important time to teach children and young people of the importance of access to justice... How better than to celebrate the contribution made by Lady Hale, such an inspirational role model for all girls and young women?
•Ruth Brander, Barrister, Doughty Street Chambers
This is a fantastic project. The importance of role models should not be underestimated.
•Carol Storer, Director, Legal Aid Practitioners Group
It is a pleasure to support this LAG book about such an inspiring woman and a pioneer in the legal world.
•Rebecca Trowler QC, Barrister, Doughty Street Chambers
This is a brilliant project. Knowing about Brenda Hale, the girl and the woman, her journey and her achievement, has the power to uplift, affirm and encourage not only girls who are aspiring academics, lawyers and judges, but every girl who reads the book.
