Women's Legal Strategies in Canada




Radha Jhappan, Sheila McIntyre, Diana Majury, Lise Gotell, Daiva Stasiulis, Abigail B. Bakan, Joanne St Lewis, Sheilah L. Martin, and Susan Phillips


After more than two decades of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it is only appropriate that feminist scholars would turn a critical eye to the achievements for social justice obtained through the courts. In this collection of nine essays, the authors grapple with the difficult question of whether the courts have done more harm or good to women's causes. The result is an interesting, at times challenging, and sometimes puzzling set of reflections on the future of women's legal strategies in Canada.
