Katharine Sacks-Jones, Director of Agenda, says: “We are pleased that the Lammy Review has drawn attention to the particular challenges Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic women face.
“This group of women experience a double disadvantage; discriminated against because of both their gender and race.
“For too long their experiences have been ignored. We hope that now, with the publication of the Lammy Review, their voices will finally be heard.
“Sexism, racism and unconscious bias should have no part in the criminal justice system – and it must stop.
“The government must take urgent action to ensure fairness throughout the process so that BAME women do not continue to face a double disadvantage.”
