Without Prejudice: Same Issue - New Cover

Book — 2016

Without Prejudice: Women in the Law (Brooker's 1996, 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, entrenched gender inequities remain in the legal profession. 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. In purple, gold and white, the book promotes international suffrage colours – symbols of justice, purity and hope. The new subtitle: Same Issue – New Cover reflects the glacial pace of change and strengthens resolve for next chapters to be written.
