The Canadian "Person": Women and the Law
This section of our exhibit focuses on Canadian law and women. It highlights some of the key dimensions of the intersection of law, culture, history, and gender. Some of the issues we explore add an additional layer: race and ethnicity. Canadian law is still wrestling with how to understand intersectional identities such as when gender, race, sexual orientation, and/or disability overlap. As always, we advocate listening to the stories of those who live in those intersections.
