Synopsis

'Compassionately and forensically exposes the many ways criminal justice fails women, and offers practical and clear-sighted solutions' THE SECRET BARRISTER



This is a book that calls time on the endless tide of violence against women and the failures of our criminal justice system to respond.







From barrister Harriet Johnson, Enough lays bare the appalling status quo of abuse against women in our society, offering an irrefutable case for why change is needed in policing and justice. Most vitally, it also gives a manifesto for how to get there.





With expertise, clear-sightedness and appropriate fury, this book helps us see where women are suffering - from homicide to domestic abuse to street harassment. It exposes the ways the criminal justice system lets women down - from officers failing to properly investigate to a lack of consequences when police behaviour is unacceptable, to backlogged courts and the realities of convincing a jury.





Addressing misogyny is to everyone's benefit and the answers aren't simple. Enough is the call to arms we can - and must - all get behind.

Harriet Johnson is a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers specialising in human rights and criminal law, and a fierce advocate of women's rights. She is a founder member of Women in Criminal Law, Joint Chair of Trustees of the charity Women in Prison and in 2016 she founded #DoughtyStWomen events, an annual series of conferences to consider what more the law can do for women. Harriet has given keynote legal addresses around the world, as well as speaking in the media about law and justice, particularly through the lens of gender.

Customer Reviews

In her work as a barrister, Harriet Johnson has seen how the criminal justice system can work and also how it can fail women. In this book, Harriet outlines many of the ways violence is perpetrated against women, how the justice system responds to it and how it can be more adequately addressed as well as prevented. An overview of the law, statistics and case studies are presented about various ways that women experience violence: homicide, sexual violence, domestic abuse, female genital mutilation, stalking, street harassment and online harassment. The author clearly points out that even though a dark picture can already be painted using the statistics that are available, there are entire groups of women whose experience is not even captured in them. If you’re not from the UK, you’ll find that the definitions of offences, the laws that relate to them and the maximum sentence applicable if someone is convicted won’t line up with the laws of your country. The statistics are also UK specific, although most didn’t seem dissimilar to what I know of stats from other countries. None of the suggested strategies for ending violence against women surprised me. They focus on prevention, as well as making improvements to the systems that are currently in place. It’s about having enough resources and training. It’s taking a long, hard look at the way police and the courts respond to violence. It’s including marginalised women in the statistics because if we don’t have a clear picture of what’s happening, then how can we ever expect things to change. Favourite quote: “the culture you get is the behaviour you tolerate.” Content warnings are included on my blog. Thank you so much to NetGalley and William Collins, an imprint of HarperCollins, for the opportunity to read this book. I’m rounding up from 3.5 stars.
