For many people around the world, every day carries the possibility of becoming a victim. Countless people will be wrongly accused and prosecuted for crimes they did not commit due to their marginal, minority or oppressed status. In the UK alone, around 11 adults will be raped every hour. In countries from China to Ireland, citizens will be discriminated against through the law based entirely on their sex. Individuals will be assaulted and harmed by others because of their religion, and held by police unfairly on the same grounds.
This is why I write. Through this blog, I hope to raise awareness of some of these injustices, and highlight the ways in which inequalities are maintained within systems of government and the law. In doing so, it is my aim to encourage reflection, and hopefully inspire change.
