The concept of GlassWalls was created by Dr Emma Forbes, whose PhD thesis explored victims’ experiences of the court process and accessing justice. It included listening to the stories of many women. Her research was conducted at the University of Glasgow. Emma is one of the first Justice Fellows in Scotland, working with the Scottish Government and the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research to translate the research findings into accessible policy.
