Sir: Natasha Walter (Comment, 1 November) contrasts the sentences given to David Hampson and Zoora Shah for killing their respective partners. I also was shocked by the mere smack on the wrist given to a man who killed his wife with a hammer because of her nagging. Are women to be silent, as death is apparently a fair reward for inopportune speech? The case confirmed to me that women will not be given justice until there are more women judges.
