We have been waiting too long

Equality is right and better for all we know that. Our progress towards it is painfully slow and not steady. WE is a chance to pool energy and develop a coherent co-ordinated strategy to get there. Women have been allowed to practice law for 96 years. Lord Sumptions tells us we must wait a further 50 years to get equality in the judiciary or we will damage it. His comments were a good example of the urgent need for WE. Here is someone in a powerful position completely falling to recognise his own privilege or really understand systemic and unconscious bias.It is clear that gender and race do determine your abillity as a judge. So the truth is we do not have the best judiciary we could have. We have the best white men, a few of the best women and BME and mediocre white men.
