Why the UK Criminal Justice system is Failing Women

About the Speaker

Dr Felicity Gerry KC, Honorary Professor at the University of Salford, is a high profile international King’s Counsel who specialises in homicide, terrorism and war crimes trials and appeals and has been described as “fearless and independent minded”. She is currently appearing for the defence in the Al Hassan trial in the International Criminal Court in The Hague. She led the intervention in the Shamima Begum appeals on the ancient law of subjecthood and the historic appeal of R v Jogee (which corrected an error of law in ‘joint enterprise’). She is also well known for her transnational work in death penalty cases. Felicity has also been an academic for a decade, teaching, researching and publishing on issues that arise in the context of human trafficking, modern slavery and other issues which particularly affect women in criminal justice. Her involvement in submissions to Governments have led to changes in law and policy, including on FGM and Reproductive rights. Read more at
