Pivot Legal Society - Equality Lifts Everyone


Join us for Gender and Justice - April 24th

The BC government is in the midst of a comprehensive review of the justice system, but we're not sure they are they asking the right questions. That's why we've teamed up with SFU's Community Engagement Office to host "Gender and Justice" on April 24th.

Retired BC Supreme Court Justice Donna Martinson will lead an informed, passionate and diverse panel in an evening of dialogue about the economic, cultural and structural barriers to women’s full and equal participation in the justice system. We have invited speakers to reflect on the current state of our justice system and to suggest ways forward in order to realize substantive equality for all.

Panelists will include:
The Honourable Donna Martinson
Kasari Govender, Executive Director, West Coast LEAF
Dalya Israel, Women Against Violence Against Women
Dorothy Chunn, SFU Professor Emerita (sociology)
Grace Tait, ALIVE
Rick Craig, Justice Education Society
Angela Marie MacDougall and Rosa Elena Arteaga, Battered Women’s Support Services

We are looking forward to a thought provoking evening of discussion, debate and strategies for change.
