The UK’s leading voice on human rights turns to an area of pervasive inequality, arguing that gender injustice is the greatest human rights abuse on the planet blighting first and developing worlds; rich and poor women, impacting on health, wealth, education, representation, opportunity and security everywhere. In a compelling discussion, she will argue that in the 21st century the position of women is an ’apartheid’, but not limited to one country or historical period - it is millennial in duration and global in reach. Only radical solutions she believes can even scratch its surface, but that the prize of righting this injustice will be a great one in terms of peace, prosperity, sustainability and general human happiness.

Shami Chakrabarti is Britain’s leading human rights campaigner and was described by David Aaronovitch in The Times as ‘probably the most effective public affairs lobbyist of the past 20 years’. A member of the House of Lords and Labour’s Shadow Attorney General, she is Chancellor of the University of Essex, Honorary Professor of Law at the University of Manchester, Honorary Fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford and a Master of the Bench of Middle Temple. She was Director of Liberty, the National Council for Civil Liberties from 2003 to 2016, and is the author of the acclaimed book On Liberty.
