Equality Deferred: Human Rights in British Columbia History

Please join us for a talk co-presented by The Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies and the Department of History (Simon Fraser University) and the Herstory Cafe. Funding provided by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at SFU.

Dr. Dominique Clément’s work explores the historical origins of human rights law, politics and activism, and focuses on British Columbia and sex discrimination. The province was at the forefront of the women’s movement and a veritable laboratory in human rights legal innovations, and yet nowhere else was human rights law more contested.
