Ten Years after Jane Doe: Vol 22(2) of the CJWL now out

Well – it’s a lot more than 10 years, isn’t it? Depends how you count.  It is about 15.5 years since the events which led to the lawsuit. The court decision came down July  3, 1998.   Jane Doe published her own account (excellent, and well received) in 2004.  In 2009, Prof. Liz Sheehy, from Ottawa U  held a very successful conference “Sexual Assault law, practice and activism in a post-Jane Doe era“.  One of three publications coming out of that conference is the latest issue of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law now in print!   Table of contents here.
