The Justice Women

The Female Presence in the Criminal Justice System 1800–1970

Stephen Wade

Today we are accustomed to seeing female police officers, barristers and judges, but this only came about through more than a century of struggle. Stephen Wade traces the history of the fight for equality and professional status through the lives of pioneering women in the legal system, including Edith Smith, the first woman police officer to be sworn in; Lilian Wyles, the first female chief inspector; and the remarkable judge Rose Heilbron.
