I can express opinions to a much greater extent than was proper when I was a serving judge. But I’m also very conscious that I don’t want to make life difficult for my successors, who have a hard job to do, and that I don’t want to get involved in party political controversies, because I’m not a politician. I did not know the political affiliations of my colleagues on the supreme court and I think that’s a very good thing In 2004, she joined the House of Lords as a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary. She is the only woman to have been appointed to that position. She served as a Law Lord until 2009 when she, along with the other Law Lords, transferred to the new Supreme Court as a result of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005. She served as Deputy President of the Supreme Court from 2013 to 2017.a b "News: Pioneering judge among Salford honorary graduates | News | University of Salford - A Greater Manchester University". 6 January 2011.

The autobiography of Baroness Hale of Richmond, published this week, is entitled Spider Woman, an allusion to the brooch, although she has also spent her 50-year career untangling the complex threads of the knottiest legal webs to produce judgements of great clarity and humanity. a b c d e f Dyer, Clare (9 January 2004). "The Guardian profile: Lady Brenda Hale". The Guardian. Archived from the original on 2 December 2016 . Retrieved 24 September 2019. In all of this Lady Hale's sheer humanity does come through in addition to her feminist position. She is a remarkable woman who has achieved a great deal even if she has been left frustrated at times (largely by male colleagues!). Equality broadly is a cornerstone of her belief as I read it. She bristles when any arguments are made that ignore this. Given how high she has risen while holding tightly to her principles it is clear that many people who may not agree with her still respect her. She certainly finds some of the arcane processes and traditions not entirely to her taste. However she does seem to like some of the "gowns" that are part of the traditions! It was her upbringing in rural Richmond that fired her interest in fairness and feminism. “It is the belief that women are equal to men in dignity and in rights and that women do have different experiences of life to men and those experiences should be as important in developing, applying and interpreting the law as are the experiences of men,” she says.

Boris Johnson wanted to prorogue Parliament, meaning that neither House could meet, debate, pass legislation, ask questions of ministers, or anything else. It would prevent parliamentary scrutiny of any Brexit deal. It fell to the president to declare the verdict, and that day she selected one of several brooches her husband had given her. Her hands hovered over the butterfly, the bee, the frog, but eventually alighted on the spider. University honours eight at graduations". 15 July 2019. Archived from the original on 24 January 2020 .

Lady Hale came to countrywide prominence in 2019 when she ruled that Boris Johnson’s prorogation of parliament was unlawful. We learned a new word – prorogation (the action of discontinuing a session of a parliament without dissolving it) – and glittering spider brooches (as worn by Lady Hale on that day) were sold out everywhere. It is a sad indictment of our society, that when confronted with a highly intelligent, powerful woman, making a very important pronouncement that could have major ramifications for the future of our country – we first notice what she is wearing, then wonder where we could get a brooch like that, then wonder if it had any specific hidden meaning pro/anti Boris (it didn’t!). We may forget her name – but not the brooch – hence the title of this book.
