As ITV’s Home Affairs Editor (1991-1999), she was one of the UK’s most senior female television correspondents and was renowned for her investigative reporting which included uncovering fresh evidence in a string of miscarriages of justice and exposing the use of rape as a weapon of war in Bosnia.

She is currently researching and developing a legislative measure to enshrine compassion in law making. This sees her liaising with MPs from all sides of Parliament, academics and civil society organisations from across the globe.
She is also developing a symposium for parliamentarians and academics in Parliament on compassionate legislation and an adaptation of the model devised by the Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and Development for use in communities.
Jennifer is co-author, with Gillian Anderson, of We: A Manifesto For Women Everywhere (2017), which lays out nine universal principles designed to assist in confronting life’s perennial emotional and spiritual challenges. Jennifer’s fourth book will be published in the summer of 2019.
