Clare Walker speaking at The Court Said Rally in Parliament Square

Clare Walker Expert Speaker at The Court Said Rally Parliament Square,   campaigning for changes to the Family Court system. #TheCourtSaid. What I spoke about was my understanding of the Family Court system and the fact that again, we have so much evidence and research, that states that it is gender bias.  That states where mothers, who alleged abuse of themselves and/or the children, have got an increased bias of losing custody of the children when it goes through the Family Courts.  And the Family Courts are like a secret society, you are not allowed to talk to anybody outside of the Court Hearing, you are not allowed to share any documentation outside of the Court Hearing, and that does include CAFCASS Reports, which may condemn and misjudge in fact we have read plenty of research, that says that is actually the case.
