Revenge, Justice and The Lost Lovelies Foundation
Dr Sally Cockburn and Beth Wilson take a deep dive into the many medico-legal issues explored in Beth‘s debut novel.
Where is the line between revenge and justice? Dr Sally Cockburn and Beth Wilson take a deep dive into the many medico-legal issues explored in Beth‘s debut novel, The Lost Lovelies Foundation, to examine whether some victims’ desire for revenge is incompatible with healing, locking them into perpetual victimhood.
The influence of single issue charities can strongly influence government policies on criminal justice, sentencing and can limit judicial discretion. Don’t be put off by the seriousness of these issues. Sally and Beth are both funny and intelligent women who are not afraid to tackle difficult and sensitive topics including how to safely fictionalise these dilemmas.
Heads up! You’re bound to have heard both these speakers on radio hundreds of times before! We are looking forward to hearing them at this year’s festival.
Beth is a former Health Services Commissioner and Sally is a General Practitioner and media health advocate with over 30 years experience. Sally also has a Masters in Health and Medical law.
