Brenda Hale, Rt Hon. the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE, only went into the law because her head teacher told her she wasn't clever enough to study history. She became the most senior judge in the country, but it was an unconventional path to the top. How does a self-professed 'girly swot' get ahead in a profession dominated by men? As President of the Supreme Court, Lady Hale won global attention in finding the 2019 prorogation of Parliament to be unlawful. Yet that dramatic moment was merely the pinnacle of a career throughout which she was hailed as a pioneering reformer. Wise, warm, and inspiring, Spider Woman shows how the law shapes our world and supports us in crisis.
