Equality Deferred: Human Rights in British Columbia History

Join SFU’s Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, the Department of History, and the Herstory Cafe for Dr. Dominique Clément’s talk on the historical origins of human rights law, with a focus on British Columbia and sex discrimination. The province was at the forefront of the women’s movement and a laboratory in human rights legal innovations, and yet nowhere else was human rights law more contested.
