    Things to dive into: A sociolegal approach and inquiry to hearsay evidence (law) that will explore the
    different ways women are discriminated against when giving evidence at trial in domestic violence and rape
    cases. Need to include sociological studies into the different ways women would communicate with outsiders
    when victim to aforementioned crimes: for example, that women will tell their families and friends first
    instead of going directly to police as these crimes happen behind closed doors; as opposed to men who often
    fall victim to crimes “outside” where there are often cameras (CCTV) or witnesses.
    Connect that to the history of Hearsay law and its development in the UK and the US. Does the new laws –
    the current approach – help or hinder women? has it been easier to rely on hearsay evidence? Should the law
    change or do more? Etc.
