Rosemary Hunter is Professor of Law and Socio-Legal studies at Queen Mary University London; she is a feminist and advocate of gender equality in the law. Throughout her academic career, Rosemary has researched socio-legal perspectives on the law including family law, feminist approaches to law and the judiciary. She has participated in a number of feminist projects such as Feminist Judgements and is widely published in a number of areas including Domestic Violence Law Reform, Rethinking Equality Projects in Law and Choice and Consent.
In this interview I find out more about feminism in the law and the personal and structural challenges women in the legal profession face. Can the legal profession ever change? Is the law itself inherently discriminatory and what advice would Rosemary give to women entering the law?
