• The life and legal career of Baroness Hale

    20,052 views 2 years ago
    In 2017, Baroness Brenda Hale became the first woman to be appointed president of the Supreme Court in England & Wales. The First 100 Years project was lucky to film her before, when she was the only woman supreme court justice. She is a true trailblazer for women in law and women in leadership more widely. And is often described by the younger generations as a 'rock star' for being so vocal about the importance of equality in making the law serve society better. Show less
