The focus of this conference is on identifying and strategizing solutions to the many challenges women currently face -- from financial and economic discrimination to racism, violence, and lack of social, cultural, political, and environmental policies that meet women's needs. Speakers with diverse backgrounds of engagement in legal and legally-related issues from across Canada and internationally will address these issues over the course of the two days of this conference.

Contact information is provided on the above webpage, or contact Bita Amani or Kathleen Lahey with any questions.
