You Said It...
"Where there is common ground, however, is that gender is an area where norms about appropriate conduct continue to shift, and also, that when it comes to gender-related misconduct, there is plenty of evidence that the judiciary still has a lot to learn. Because judges are rightly held to a higher standard, it is not enough to say that just because conduct is not unlawful, it is appropriate." - The Hon. Anisa Dhanji, UKMore
