Women-in-Crime Alison Saunders

Alison Saunders

Heads up the Crown Prosecution Service

Alison Saunders         Perhaps we are looking in the wrong place looking at women on boards, or  “everyday sexism”, women with power, may be more relevant.

Cherie Blaire is backing female talent. Women of the Future Awards takes place on 13 November in London.   The largest national search for exceptionally talented women.
As Patron Cherie Blair has said:  Young women are “vital” in the quest for equality.
“Celebrating these women will encourage others to follow in their footsteps, to pursue their dreams, and help inspire female leaders of the future.”

At the Wired conference, last month, an interesting proposition, and a question.
“It’s time to find an app for gender equality”  Natasha McElhone speaking. Actress , writer and mother of 3 boys; she is also an inspiration, to women, mothers, and all generations.
“Why have we allowed Brazilians and vajazzling to become the new Chinese foot binding?”
We should be pouring the same energy into hacking gender stereotypes as we do when disrupting any other sector.”

Finally Alison Saunders DPP makes clear her intentions:

“I’m very excited about the next five years. The focus is going to be on issues such as violence against women where the work I’ve done in London is really going to help.”

 

Here is an  extract from the Press Release from her office, the Crown Prosecution Service, who also supplied the pictures:
“New DPP begins term with promise to victims

Better communications with victims goes to the very core of what justice is meant to achieve. One bad experience as a result of confusing and unsympathetic correspondence from us can undermine someone’s confidence in the whole system and we need the confidence of those it serves.
Victims need empathy and respect, not jargon and judgment.”
This sounds to me like a woman talking.  So currently we have role models for all generations, and some things to think about.  Where do you think women have most influence for social change?
