Lady Hale’s motto: “Omnia feminae aequissimae,” roughly translates as: “Women are equal to everything.” The motto of Girton College, Cambridge, Lady Hale’s alma mater, is: “Better is wisdom than weapons of war,” while: “Vim promovet insitam,” which roughly translates as: “[Learning] promotes one’s innate power,” is the motto of the University of Bristol, where Lady Hale was chancellor between 2004 and 2017.
