Without Prejudice: Same Issue - New Cover

Book — 2016

First issued in 1996, Without Prejudice: Women in the Law (Brooker's, 550pp.) documented 100 years of cultural and systemic bias against women and minorities within NZ’s legal institutions, and outlined strategies for change. Despite good intentions, more time and more numbers entering the profession, deep inequities remain. Commemorating 120 years since the NZ Parliament reversed its own law prohibiting women lawyers, the landmark text is re-issued in hardback - lending metaphoric spine to the cause of justice. Encased in purple cloth with gold and white lettering, the book adopts international suffrage colours, symbols of justice, purity and hope. The new title Without Prejudice: Same Issue – New Cover refers to the glacial pace of change and strengthens resolve for chapters yet to be written.
