Dayna Scott in the G&M: Beyond BPA: We need to get tough on toxics

Osgoode’s Dayna Scott on the op-ed page. Here’s Dayna’s SSRN page. She’s a co director of the National Network on Environments and Women’s Health,and recently wrote a guest post here on the blog.  In the Globe, she calls the Federal government to task for their approach to toxic substances.  I always appreciate Dayna’s feminist analysis.  She never ignores class and race factors.  Plus she is always up for a fight or a laugh.
