Slimovitch, B.A., LL.B. Does the law reflect the evolving roles of men and women, or does it help to shape them? Gender, Sex and the Law in Canada brings together a group of prominent legal and social thinkers from across Canada in an attempt to provoke and start a dialogue. Consisting of articles from leading practitioners and academics in the areas of criminal, family, and alternative dispute resolution law, Gender, Sex and the Law in Canada examines the intersection between the law and gender and explores the effect of gender bias in the application and development of the law in various areas such as family, criminal and immigration law. Topics examined include: the role gender plays in legal negotiations; the economic and property rights of de facto spouses; child pornography offences; freedom of religion and child custody.
