The book examines the broken systems and explores the changes needed in order to ensure that women's freedom is no longer threatened by laws which are supposed to protect them.

Dr Yoshida has represented victims and survivors of abuse in different legal proceedings, including in judicial reviews and in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Keina is also an academic at the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and sits on the editorial board of the journal Feminist Legal Studies.

Keina’s publications include Feminist Conversations on Peace (Bristol University Press, 2022) as well as academic journal articles in the European Human Rights Law Review, Human Rights Quarterly and International Affairs.
