Alexandra Wilson, a criminal and family lawyer in London, says she's known about the gender, racial and class inequalities "since day one" of her career. She made headlines last month when she spoke out for being mistaken as a defendant in court three times in one day. Wilson talks to The World's Marco Werman about injustices that exist within the legal system and what the government must do to tackle them.
