Equal Justice, Rabia Siddique

34.99 AUD
Growing up as a muslim in the monocultural landscape of 
1970s suburban Perth, Rabia Siddique knew what it was 
like to be different.
 She became a lawyer, moved to the 
UK and joined the British army as a military lawyer. She 
served in Iraq and was taken as a hostage by Islamic 
insurgents as she tried to negotiate the release of two 
kidnapped British soldiers. She battled for hours to save 
their lives, negotiating with their captors. After their 
release, her colleague received a Military Cross. Rabia 
received nothing. Her subsequent sex and race 
discrimination case against the British Army made 
headlines around the world. Her perspective as a 
feminist, a social justice crusader, a lawyer, a soldier, a 
former hostage, a terrorism prosecutor and a muslim is 
unique, and her memoir is a story of grit, courage and 
conviction.
