Kerri Froc awarded Trudeau & Vanier awards for Doctoral studies

[via Queen’s Law] PhD research on Charter rights of women wins student major Trudeau and Vanier awards.

During the winter semester, Froc will once again teach Equality Rights and the Charter at Queen’s Law. She is also a part-time staff lawyer with the Canadian Bar Association, working on equality initiatives.

An eloquent advocate for women’s rights, Froc contends those rights have languished despite the Charter’s general equality clause, s. 15. “It really has been a disappointment for women,” she says. “For example, there hasn’t been a successful sex equality case brought by a woman at the Supreme Court of Canada.”

Here’s Kerri’s page at the Trudeau Foundation, for more information about her and her work.
