The 30th Anniversary of Canadian Equality Rights: W(h)ither Sex Equality?-Prof Donna Greschner (Victoria)

Within each of the three distinct doctrinal periods over the past thirty years, the potential to use Charter rights effectively in promoting substantive equality for women has diminished. Is there any way out of the ever-narrowing doctrinal cage?
