Enough: The Violence Against Women and How to End It

by Harriet Johnson - £12.99  HarperCollins Publishers (2022)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780008533069 | ISBN 10: 0008533067

This is a book that calls time on the endless tide of violence against women and the failures of our criminal justice system to respond.
 
From barrister Harriet Johnson, Enough lays bare the appalling status quo of abuse against women in our society, offering an irrefutable case for why change is needed in policing and justice. Most vitally, it also gives a manifesto for how to get there.
 
With expertise, clear-sightedness and appropriate fury, this book helps us see where women are suffering – from homicide to domestic abuse to street harassment. It exposes the ways the criminal justice system lets women down – from officers failing to properly investigate to a lack of consequences when police behaviour is unacceptable, to backlogged courts and the realities of convincing a jury.
 
Addressing misogyny is to everyone’s benefit and the answers aren’t simple. Enough is the call to arms we can – and must – all get behind.
