The BBC described Dr Charlotte Proudman as 'the feminist barrister'. Charlotte is an award-winning barrister, Cambridge academic and campaigner 'fighting for women's rights in and out of court,' inews. Legal Cheek named her '#MeToo pioneer' and the Telegraph said she is 'clever, confident and impressively well-versed on women’s rights'.
Charlotte represents survivors of rape, domestic abuse and coercive and controlling behaviour in court whilst also challenging misconceptions across the sector. She uses her knowledge and experience of the justice system to advocate for legal change to ensure protection and support for victims and survivors.
The Feminist Barrister
Combining the law and academia, Charlotte is a Fellow at Queens' College, Cambridge where she researches and lectures on gender inequality under the law. Charlotte was awarded a doctorate in FGM law and policy from King's College, Cambridge. She has since written a book, 'FGM: When Culture and Law Clash', which was published by Oxford University Press. As an expert in FGM, Charlotte was instrumental in the introduction of FGM Protection Orders (FGMPOs) and she continues to represent victims of FGM in court.
"She is a leader in the field of FGM law whose research has made a significant contribution to scholarship in this area and has had an impact on case law and law reform in England and Wales"

"Charlotte is never shy of helping us test the boundaries of the law, or of tackling a relatively new form of domestic abuse, widespread image-based abuse (revenge porn), or raising novel arguments arising under the Equality Act, which have yet to be tested in court"
--- Dr Ann Olivarius, Chair and Senior Partner of McAllister Olivarius
Charlotte is passionately committed to using the law to further gender equality and eliminate discrimination against women and girls. The law is a powerful force for social change and creating a better world. In partnership with Good Law Project, Charlotte has founded an organisation, Right to Equality, which is working to advance gender equality and diversity and puts access to justice at the top of the agenda. Right to Equality's mission is to change the law for women and girls.
