Bri Lee entered a Queensland court as a bright-eyed judge’s associate. Two years later she returned as a sexual assault complainant in her own case. Helen Garner praises Bri’s award-winning account of her journey through the legal system, Eggshell Skull, as “scorching, self-scouring … a young woman finds her steel and learns to wield it”. Discussing her eloquent memoir with Guardian Australia’s editor Lenore Taylor, Bri reflects on what it means to be a woman in our justice system.
