Sally Clark

Sally Clark was an English solicitor who, in November 1999, became the victim of a miscarriage of justice when she was found guilty of the murder of her two infant sons. Clark's first son died in December 1996 within a few weeks of his birth, her second son died in similar circumstances in January 1998. A month Clark was arrested and tried for both deaths; the defence argued. The prosecution case relied on flawed statistical evidence presented by paediatrician Professor Sir Roy Meadow, who testified that the chance of two children from an affluent family suffering SIDS was 1 in 73 million, he had arrived at this figure by approximating the square of 1 in 8500, as being the likelihood of SIDS in similar circumstances. The Royal Statistical Society issued a statement arguing that there was no statistical basis for Meadow's claim, expressed concern at the "misuse of statistics in the courts". Clark was convicted in November 1999; the convictions were upheld on appeal in October 2000, but overturned in a second appeal in January 2003, after it emerged that Alan Williams, the prosecution forensic pathologist who examined both babies, had failed to disclose microbiological reports that suggested the second of her sons had died of natural causes.

Clark was released from prison having served more than three years of her sentence. Journalist Geoffrey Wansell called Clark's experience "one of the great miscarriages of justice in modern British legal history"; as a result of her case, the Attorney-General ordered a review of hundreds of other cases, two other women had their convictions overturned. Clark's experience caused her to develop serious psychiatric problems and she died in her home in March 2007 from alcohol poisoning. Sally Clark was born Sally Lockyer in Devizes and was an only child, her father was a senior police officer with Wiltshire Constabulary and her mother was a hairdresser. She was educated at South Wilts Grammar School for Girls in Salisbury, she studied geography at Southampton University, worked as a management trainee with Lloyds Bank and at Citibank. She married solicitor Steve Clark in 1990, left her job in the City of London to train in the same profession, she studied at City University and trained at Macfarlanes, a city law firm.

She moved with her husband to join the law firm Addleshaw Booth & Co in Manchester in 1994. They bought a house in Wilmslow in Cheshire. Clark's first son, was born on 26 September 1996. Court documents describe him as a healthy baby. On 13 December Clark called an ambulance to the family home; the baby had fallen unconscious after being put to bed, was declared dead after being transported to the hospital. Clark suffered from post-natal depression and received counselling at the Priory Clinic, but was in recovery by the time her second son, was born three weeks premature on 29 November 1997. However, he was found dead on 26 January 1998, aged 8 weeks. On both occasions, Clark was at home alone with her baby and there was evidence of trauma, which could have been related to attempts to resuscitate them. Clark and her husband were arrested on 23 February 1998 on suspicion of murdering their children. On the advice of her lawyers she twice refused to answer questions, she was charged with two counts of murder whilst the case against her husband was dropped.

Clark always denied the charge, was supported throughout by her husband. During the court proceedings she gave birth to a third son. Clark was tried before Mr Justice Harrison and a jury; the prosecution, led by Robin Spencer QC, was controversial for its involvement of the paediatrician Professor Sir Roy Meadow, former Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Leeds, who testified at Clark's trial that the chance of two children from an affluent family suffering cot death was 1 in 73 million. He likened the probability to the chances of backing an 80–1 outsider in the Grand National four years running, winning each time. Dr Alan Williams withheld the results of bacteriology tests on her second baby which showed the presence of the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus in multiple sites including his cerebro-spinal fluid. During the trial the jury asked if there were any'blood' test results for this child. Williams returned to the witness box to deal with their query, he was asked about an entry in the notes referring to'C&S' results.

These referred to samples taken for sensitivity tests. In his responses he failed to reveal the existence of these withheld test results. Clark was convicted by a 10–2 majority verdict on 9 November 1999, given the mandatory sentence of life imprisonment, she was reviled in the press as the murderer of her children. Despite recognition of the flaws in Meadow's statistical evidence, the convictions were upheld at appeal in October 2000, she was imprisoned at Styal women's prison, near her home in Wilmslow, Bullwood Hall women's prison in Hockley in Essex. The nature of her conviction as a child-killer, her background as a solicitor and daughter of a police officer, made her a target for other prisoners, her husband left his partnership at a Manchester law firm to work as a legal assistant nearer the prison, selling the family house to meet the legal bills from the trial and first appeal. It came to light that microbiological tests showed that Harry had colonisation of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, indicating that he had died from natural causes, but the evidence had not been disclosed to the defence.

This exculpatory evidence had been known to the prosecution's pathologist, Alan Williams, since February 1998, but was not shared with other medical witnes

Pink Boots Society

The Pink Boots Society is a non-profit organization with international membership which supports women working in the brewing profession in creating craft beer. The organization helps women brewers meet mentors, have the opportunity to network with other women in the profession and raises awareness of women in brewing. PBS encourages women brewers to further their education and helps teach the skills needed to become beer judges. PBS raises money for scholarships for women to continue their education in brewing. There are around 1,800 members across the world. All members must be women and have some type of career in the brewing world or related to beer and beer-making. In 2007, brewer Teri Fahrendorf met other brewers, Laura Ulrich and Whitney Thompson while on a road trip, her trip, in which she went to 70 different breweries and participated in 38 brewings helped her realize that many of the women brewers she met didn't know there were other women in their profession. The first manifestation of PBS was a list of women brewers maintained on a blog.

PBS had its first meeting at the Craft Brewers Conference and it drew 22 members. Fahrendorf founded PBS as a non-profit organization and named it after the pink boots she wore when brewing, given to her by her mother-in-law. In 2013, PBS was contacted by Sophie de Ronde to create the International Women's Collaboration Brew Day; the day helps raise awareness about women in the brewing industry and helps raise money for PBS. The Pink Boots Society's archival collections are housed in the Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives at Oregon State University; this collection helps document the creation, growth and members of the Pink Boots Society.
