Beginning with the Women’s Court of Canada in the early 2000s, a number of jurisdictionally-specific feminist judgment projects (FJPs) have grown up around the world. These creative, collaborative initiatives involve feminist scholars and lawyers reimagining and rewriting judicial decisions through a feminist lens, and accounting for intersecting inequalities based on disability, race, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity and national identity. On this panel, scholars from a range of jurisdictions will reflect on the possibilities and challenges of FJPs.
This panel is part of LAW 307D Women, Law & Social Change and will also be open to the public.
