Intersection of Gender Issues and Culture and Religious Diversity: Do We Need an Evolution of the Law on Equality Rights? (1:10:43)
10:15 am – Noon Intersection of Gender Issues and Culture and Religious Diversity: Do We Need an Evolution of the Law on Equality Rights? (1:10:43)
Until 40 years ago, Canada had very little equality jurisprudence and little legal expression as to what constituted discrimination. In 2017, has the Charter moved Canada to be more diverse, fair and equitable? What does a decision-maker do when gender, culture and religion intersect and possibly collide? The primary focus of this panel will be to consider the previous issues from the perspective of gender on the basis of the premise that gender issues are integrally linked to issues of religious diversity.
