International Women's Day with Mrs Justice Finola O'Farrell DBE
To celebrate International Women’s Day and mark the “Break the Bias" theme, we are pleased to share our latest podcast episode with Gaynor Chambers and Jennie Wild. Gaynor and Jennie are joined by Mrs Justice Finola O’Farrell DBE whose career exemplifies the aims of the IWD movement and who has made the path to a gender equal world easier for all the women following behind.
O’Farrell J guides us through her early years, university, family life, and professional career leading to her appointment as a High Court Judge, signposting these significant moments with songs and books that remind her of that time. She discusses challenges she has faced and offers advice to women considering a career at the Bar: "Have the courage to speak up in meetings and to challenge decisions, don't let fear silence you".
