Barrister explores institutional sexism and women’s rights in guest lecture

Charlotte Proudman is set to present a guest lecture on tackling institutional sexism in the legal profession.

Charlotte, a Barrister in family law and fearless advocate for women’s rights, was thrust into the public eye last year for calling out a male, senior member of the legal profession who complimented her on her appearance via a message on networking site, LinkedIn.

Taking place on 18 April, her lecture, titled Breaking the cycle of institutional sexism in the legal profession with quotas for women, will explore the wider problems of this kind of institutional sexism within the legal profession.

In her lecture, she will explore how feminists have been campaigning against sexist and discriminatory laws for centuries.
